About the Book

Many excellent and informative books have been written on addiction. These books have provided information about the nature of the disease, characteristics of the addictive life-style, and ways to offer recovery to the addict. There have also been helpful books written on the dynamics of family life when family members have an individual who has an addiction. However, few books have been written to help families as they struggle with the faith questions and issues that arise when addiction is a part of the family. This book will help families deal with these faith questions and issues such as where is God, how do I pray, and is there hope?

This book is written for families that are dealing with the addiction of a family member. It is intended to address the faith issues that these families are struggling with as they also deal with the family dynamics associated with addiction.
