Unchained: Powerful. Riveting.
“Addiction is a family disease, and often, family members in the orbit of an addicted person are looking for help, hope, advice, and assurance that they’re not alone. Unchained is the best book I know of to share with a family dealing with addiction. It’s honest, it’s accurate, and it’s a powerfully told story from a gifted writer and her son who know there’s hope, because their family is living proof.”
