Product description


"Pond's insights coupled with Palmer's section on evidence-based treatments make this an invaluable resource for readers battling their own addictions or concerned about their loved ones."—Publisher's Weekly

"A vividly written page-turner ...gripping and helpful"—Gabor Maté, The Globe and Mail

"Few books have captured so well the challenge of managing the disease of addiction while simultaneously negotiating an often unresponsive health care system" — Dr Keith Humphreys, former Senior Drug Policy Advisor, Obama Administration

“With tactile intimacy and surgical wit, Pond invites us to share the tragedy of his addiction with a sad smile. And then reveals a singular truth about how people quit. Truly one of a kind… A masterful job of describing the indescribable.” — Dr. Marc Lewis, Neuroscientist and Author, Memoirs of an Addicted Brain.
