What People Are Saying About The Book

“If you find yourself screaming for hope and help with addictions, I’d highly recommend you pick up this just-released book by my esteemed colleague and renowned interventionist, Dr. Louise Stanger.  ADDICTION IN THE FAMILY is a concise, easy-to-read primer on recovery for the family who is affected by someone struggling with addiction(s).   This is one of those books you really do not want to have to read; but it is a lifesaver for those who need it.”

Dr. Nancy Irwin

Clinical Psychologist

Addiction in the Family is an important contribution to families and others who are concerned about a loved one. It will provide some hope and guidance for difficult situations, particularly relevant during challenging times.

“Your road to recovery starts with Addiction in the Family. Louise has dedicated her entire life to helping people with addiction. Her deep knowledge of substance use disorders, addiction, and mental illness guides you through the pages of the book. I found the section on 12 Common Myths About Addition to be eye-opening and extremely supportive. This book is accessible, easy to digest, and provides top-notch tips and strategies for recovery.”

Joel Garfinkel

Dr. Louise Stanger writes from a warm, loving, and wounded heart, understanding more deeply than most the perilous journey of healing for the family struggling with addiction. I highly recommend this work for the wisdom and experience of healing the family.
