About the Book
Slaying the Addiction Monster - An All-Inclusive Look at Drug Addiction in America Today.

In this outstanding sequel to the successful I Am Your Disease, the author digs deeper into the squalid, frightening world of drugs and addiction.

Gone is the stereotypical image of the dysfunctional drug addict cloaked in the darkness of despair on the streets, disheveled and ravaged by the effects of drugs. These images are replaced today with the clean-cut, good looking boy and girl next door, the high school athlete, the musician...the All-American kid...until they too can no longer hide their scars, both physical and emotional.

This book gives you a glimpse into the lives of the parents who fought valiantly to save their child from an early death. It takes you into the minds of the addicted people themselves and shows you their desperation.

There are sections on how to perform an Intervention, how the Teen Brain is different from the mature brain, how to tell if you're an "enabler," how prescription drugs are killing more people today than illicit drugs, what signs to look for if you suspect your child is doing drugs, some sobering information on Methadone, the latest research by leading addiction researchers, new ways to get high like "cheese," the resurgence of heroin, myths about drug abuse, Crime? and Punishment of addicted people in America, amphetamines and heart attacks, info from NIDA, a place for the child and parent to sign a pledge not to do drugs, advice from parents who have lived with an addicted child, and a lot more.

The book is written in easy to understand language. It is not a clinical text book. It tells you real stories and gives good, hard hitting advice.
