Confused. Desperate. Trapped, with no way out. HEAR THE VOICES OF THOSE MOST VULNERABLE: Those addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, exposure to inappropriate material, and other destructive plagues of our times. Promising yeshivah bachurim, kollel yungeleit-no group is immune to the devastation of these dangers. Spouses and parents watch helplessly as their loved ones sink into pain and despair. In this eye-opening book on teshuvah and recovery, renowned author and psychiatrist Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski offers his wise insights into the psychological and spiritual aspects of addiction and the benefits of joining a twelve-step program. Included are inspiring personal accounts of those who have descended to the lowest recesses, yet emerged triumphant from the depths of darkness. Addressing the common questions addicts-and their families-ask, Rabbi Twerski challenges our thought processes and debunks the myths about addiction in the frum community. He tackles such topics as why this scourge is so widespread today, why the Twelve Steps are effective in addressing this problem, and where to turn for those desperately needed answers. Teshuvah through Recovery is a book that no suffering person or family should be without. Please be advised that this book contains sensitive material.
