“Your battles inspired me – not the obvious material battles but those that were fought and won behind your forehead.” James Joyce

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

attatroll00heinrich_0115

“Few experiences in life quite match the feelings of horror, fear, helplessness, and grief that families experience when someone they love becomes addicted to alcohol or other drugs. They watch in dismay as the addict becomes alienated from the family and undergoes profound changes. Activities that once brought the addict pleasure are abandoned, old friends are pushed away, and the addict withdraws into a world that is inaccesible to anyone who tries to help.”

Beverly Conyers, Addict In The Family: Stories of Loss, Hope, and Recovery
