Addiction: What's Really Going On? contains powerful true-life stories
woven together to form a tapestry filled with pain, joy, defeat, and success.
The entire book is molded around Deborah McCloskey's heartfelt
desire for her clients to be free of drugs. Her counseling methods both endeared
her as "the counselor to get" and locked her into a decade of
searching for better ways to help those she felt were stuck on the merry-go-round of a methadone system. This book should be read by teachers,
hospitals employees, college students, government officials, and our general
adult population whether addicted, sober, or straight.
