About the Author
Other than being known as "Elliot's Mom," Annie Highwater is a long distance runner, health and wellness advocate and a fanatical researcher of behavioral science, family pathology and concepts of dysfunction and conflict. Annie resides in Columbus, Ohio where she has worked in the insurance industry. She also enjoys writing, yoga and visiting her son in Southern California as often as possible.
Top customer reviews
I strongly suggest this book to anyone dealing with a family member who is battling addiction.
this book is also a guide to finding peace of mind through the storm.
It wasn't what I thought it would be. The author did descibe the events that led to her son's recovery, but I was was expecting more about how she learned to manage her life (the mention of Naranon and Alanon are in the book). I also would like to disagree, with the statement "relapse is part of recovery." In some cases, yes it maybe, but what I've learned, is this statement is a myth, in the world of recovery.
