Help with drug addictions . . . or “spreading the hate”?
Changing Lives received the following “interesting” email. We thought it was “interesting” enough to post—along with Joe’s response—in the hope that some of you will also share your comments.
Although the writer does not let us know exactly what she is responding to, we assume it is to Joe’s comments on our blog post “Cocaine vaccine shows promise in mice. Promise for whom?” or “The effectiveness of Suboxone in the treatment of Opiate Addiction.”
As the mom of a child struggling with addiction, and the author of ‘The Joey Song: A Mother’s Story of Her Son’s Addiction,’ my ‘go to’ book is still “Why Don’t They Just Quit? ~Sandy Swenson
Best book ever about addiction. Written by one whose done it and is recovering. Easy to read, not preachy, just honest. I recommend this book to anyone with an addict in their life! ~Lynda A
Got an addiction problem in your family? Read this book. Joe knows his stuff. This book helps you to better understand those who are dealing with friends and family that are addicted to drugs and alcohol. I have read several of these books but this one is the best. ~RJ
