Reviews

"Simply a wonderful book, a godsend. One of the best books of its kind I've ever read."
-JOHN SHINHOLSER, president of The McShin Foundation and person in long-term recovery

"If we're serious about addressing the addiction crisis, we need to get on the same page, unite, and work together to stand any real chance of making a meaningful and lasting difference. This book should inspire and empower policy makers and the public alike to become 'allies in recovery.'"
-JOHN F. KELLY, PhD, ABPP, Elizabeth R. Spallin Professor of Psychiatry in Addiction Medicine at Harvard Medical School and founder and director of the Recovery Research Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital

"Tragically, we lost [my nephew] to an overdose in 2018. This wonderful, well-researched book comes too late for our family, but I have great hope that it will help many others avoid this terrible and avoidable outcome."
-LISA HALLEE, JD, CPCC (Certified Professional Co-Active Coach) and affected family member

"This is the resource I will be pointing everyone to when they ask how they can help someone with substance use disorder. Webb compassionately articulates a complex, complicated topic and provides actionable steps that anyone can do. I'm excited to share this book with our readers."
-CAROLYN DELANEY, founder and publisher of Journey magazine and person in long-term recovery

"An excellent contribution to the growing literature on addiction recovery. This book is clear and concise and makes a compelling addition to our understanding of the key role communities and
social networks play in the complex pathways to addiction recovery."
-DAVID BEST, PhD., professor of criminology at the University of Derby and author of Pathways to Recovery and Desistance

"I wish I had had the knowledge contained in this book during my law enforcement career and when I realized my daughter was struggling with an opioid use disorder. It would have changed my approach and made a positive difference."
-BOB MACKENZIE, chief of police, Kennebunk, Maine, and affected family member

"Webb courageously tackles the root causes of substance use disorder, including trauma and mental health, and thoughtfully explores the barriers encountered by those in recovery, most especially shame and stigma. An essential read for those serving and interacting with individuals in recovery and for those who want to make a difference in their communities."
-DR. ALANE O'CONNOR, DNP, clinical advisor at MaineMOM (Maine Maternal Opioid Misuse)
