At Wit's End is a guide that will provide vital information - and support to families dealing with a loved one's co-occurring psychiatric and addictive problem.

Addiction experts Jay and Boriskin demystify complex terms and provide you with helpful insights about how psychiatric diagnoses mimic addictive disorders, why chemical use exacerbates psychiatric problems, and when intervention is needed.

Excerpt: "Once a person has a powerful reason to live - whether for love, faith, friendship, or goals - obstacles become challenges and stubbornness turns into determination."
