Do you have a child, regardless of their age, struggling with substance abuse or drug dependency? Are you searching for answers that will save them from sinking further into their drug issues? Do you spend your time in torturous worry as you wonder where they are, what they are doing, when will they be home?  The Addict, until the safety net is gone, presents my story about how I dealt with a son as he struggled with drug dependency.
The story starts with the beginning of his substance abuse at thirteen and continues through his teen years as his drug dependency grew into The Addict, an entity that rose within him and controlled his body as it’s own. I discuss my journey of providing counseling for him while I learned to accept his need for more intense treatment. I learned many things along the way as I researched everything I needed to know and more. In this book, I present:
When I began to question my son’s behavior yet excused it away.
The many mistakes I made until my son’s life was in jeopardy.
What plan I initiated to give him a chance at life and the negative effect on our relationship. 
What information I collected to execute that plan successfully. 
How I coped with my son’s anger as he resisted the treatment programs.
The science of drug dependency and how the brain can recover normal functioning.
The importance of maintaining my health as I coped with these issues because this is not a sprint. It is a marathon. 
My son survived, and so did I. Today, he is a successful adult living a full, healthy, drug-free life. And we have a beautiful relationship. If you are looking for hope, this book is for you.
