Preventing Addiction: What Parents Must Know to Immunize Their Kids Against Drug and Alcohol Addiction
"Addiction is a chronic, progressive and incurable disease," says author John C. Fleming, a Louisiana physician who specializes in treating individuals and families facing the problem. "Though treatable, recovery rates are very low." Prevention is the only guaranteed way to avoid the life-long, personal-and-family misery associated with drug abuse, Fleming maintains. In his ground-breaking book, Fleming shows parents how to truly "drug-proof" their children. Parents wanting to help their children avoid drugs altogether as well as parents who already face the prospect of a drug-using child or teen will benefit greatly by reading and implementing the techniques described in his book.
