The compulsion to use substances tends to drain every ounce of life from an individual, but this is often equally as true for their family. Most family members do not know where to turn for support and guidance when a child, parent, or spouse becomes ill. Society offers little to educate the public or destigmatize the problem of addiction.
I Love You More is distinct from other books on the market on addiction as it is meant to be an emotional education on the family systems affected by addiction using three fictional short stories, all with very different endings. These three powerful stories have common threads of hope, pain, mistrust, grief, worry, change, acceptance, belief, and the constant presence of varying levels of sanity across a broad spectrum.
I Love You More offers insight into the various perspectives and experiences of family members who have dealt with the harrowing disease of addiction. The goal of this quick, accessible book is to be the conduit that allows you to enter the body and mind of a substance abuser and their family, to see the world through their eyes as they navigate their way through one of the most heart-breaking and gut-wrenching hardships they will ever face.
