Recovery Stories is a collection of first-hand accounts by people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Invaluable for those looking to find new, addiction-free ways to live, it contains insights into the lives of real people who hit 'rock bottom' but came back again. Of interest across a wide-range of disciplines, including health, education and social services. Addiction is an illness that kills. Accused of lacking a moral compass and blamed for their own self-destruction, addicts are often forced to live on the margins of society. Afforded little sympathy or support, they may end-up involved in criminality, violence, dishonesty and face despair. They may hit rock bottom when day-to-day survival can become a delicate balance between life and death. But addiction - which occurs in every walk of life - need not be a 'life sentence'. As this book shows, no-one is beyond turning such dire situations around. Recovery Stories is a collection of true stories of triumph over adversity. It tells how the horror of addiction can be overcome, how people can free themselves of their dependency. It is a book of hope and inspiration which will encourage all those seeking 'new ways to live' a full, addiction-free and successful life. 'This book tells the stories that need to be told...Addiction is an illness and has to be seen and tackled as such': Alastair Campbell, Ambassador for Time to Change and Alcohol Concern.
