Recommended Reading:

Baffled by Addiction is a MUST READ. Under the Influence and Beyond the Influence are very clinical in nature. The last two are personal stories written by loving parents who have an addicted child. Stay Close touched me deeply and became my “bible” when I learned about my son’s addiction.

I also highly recommend that everyone read the Alcoholics Anonymous book. Reading that book gives great insight into the disease of addiction.
