RECOVERED: How an unsustainable addiction led to a sustained life
Addiction has torn our country apart from the inside. According to the CDC there were over 68,500 deaths from overdose in 2018. This is shocking compared to 16,000 overdose deaths in 1999. Opioid addiction, along with any addiction, is not confined to the person going through the struggle. There are even more loved ones who suffer through the hardships as hope rises and falls like the tides. This story unveils many points of confusion throughout the entire process. The author Jacob R. Jones dives deep into his addiction in the pages of this book. He uncovers many unanswered questions asked by so many afflicted with this disease. The first part of the book tracks his early years and descent into the grips of substance abuse. This all culminates in a terrifying hospital stay. From the hospital, to the rehab, his journey of hope begins. In the following chapters he reveals insights through the lens of active addiction, and the family. He proceeds to shed light on stories from rehabilitation facilities which have previously been a source of fear and unknown for first time recovering addicts and their families. All of these roads lead to the final chapter where he uncovers the problem and solution in easy, digestible language. If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction, or has in the past, this book is a must read!
