My Dad Is an Alcoholic, What about Me? by Marc Treitler Review
Does Someone in Your Life Drink Too Much? Do Drugs? Does Their Addiction Often Make You Feel Unsafe? Do You Wonder if You Might Someday Be Like Them?
Marc grew up in a family of addicts. Eventually he, too, became an alcoholic. His kids struggled to understand why their dad drank so much and why he was so angry when he did. It was only when he recognized how his addiction was affecting his family that Marc finally took the steps necessary to recover.
In this book Marc and his daughter Lianna tell you everything they wish someone had told them about addiction. Together, they share their family's journey of recovery.
Science says that just like some people are allergic to peanuts, others are allergic to alcohol and drugs. If one of your parents has an addiction allergy, you might have that same allergy hiding in your genes.
The good news is that you have a choice. Marc and Lianna teach you how to stop your allergy from ever "turning on."
If you're wondering what's happening in your family, and what you should do, My Dad is an Alcoholic will help you find your way.
You can purchase a copy on Amazon.
Cassandra's Review- The book is open for anyone to really get to the heart of the topic. It was written with such honesty that I feel anyone struggling with this can benefit. I think this book would be a great addition to libraries and in schools.
