THE UNDERGROUND RECOVERY BOOK

If someone you care about has a drug problem, you owe it to yourself to understand why, what to do, and where to get help.

BUY THIS BOOK, IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE!

The statistics are staggering.

  1. One in every eight Americans has a significant problem with drugs or alcohol.
  2. 27 Million Americans use illicit drugs regularly or are “heavy” drinkers. Of these roughly 16 million need immediate treatment for their drug / alcohol usage.
  3. By age 18 roughly 12% of all youth are regular illegal drug abusers.
  4. The annual direct costs of drug / alcohol abuse to our society is roughly 250 billion dollars.
  5. Addiction and alcoholism have become one of the most severe mental health and social problem facing our society. (Source SAMHSA Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration)

With so many people being directly or indirectly affected by addiction it would make sense that a practical, easy to read illustrated book would be available to help. However what is currently available is mostly not “user friendly” and full of misinformation.  Sadly, the other addiction books available are written by academics or researchers; for other academics or researchers.  What is missing is a bold in your face explanation of addiction, what it means to be an addict, and how to change and be drug free– using methods that have academic validity.

When I began working at an inpatient substance abuse treatment center, I noticed that the material being used was “milquetoast” Hazelden approved literature. Copies of old copies were made and the material was so banal and uninspiring clients would constantly complain.  In addition, many of the clients had reading disabilities and didn’t like the unillustrated, long never-ending pages of text written at a college level.

Other books like the “Alcoholism and Addiction Cure Book” were also long uninspired reads. Finally, the handouts and books that were available in substance abuse didn’t make solutions to addiction “real.” Family members also complained. They couldn’t find a reader-friendly comprehensive book that explained the mechanics of addiction, family dynamics of addiction, and how they could assist rather than enabling the addict. Basically, what I had to work with was of no interest to the people who needed the help. With 2 million people entering inpatient substance abuse treatment yearly and millions suffering without knowledge of their illness, I decided I had to create my own.  Finally, all those suffering from America’s “dirty little secret” would have a personable textbook to help them and heal them.

Scope

I SAY, “DRUGS AND ADDICTION SHOULD HAVE NEVER MESSED WITH ME!

 

Reviews

“I have been to 10 treatment centers and just couldn’t get straight. With this book I learned about why I use and how to motivate myself to stop. The workbook pages helped me to understand where I was at in the stages of change and how to deal with feelings. I owe you my life.”

-Nancy M. Ann Arbor, MI USA

“My husband was out of control. I was embarrassed and scared. After reading your book I learned who to contact for help. I also learned how to protect myself, set boundaries and no longer be an enabler.”

–Cynthia K. New York, NY USA

“This book saved my life! Without it I would still be drinking. Now I understand why addiction is a disease and how to stop it. Thank you.”

-Tony M. Detroit, MI USA

“This guy knows what he is talking about. You can tell he’s battled addiction himself and isn’t trying to feed you bs. There is a LOT of information in this book, but it isn’t your typical regurgitated academic information. The way this book is written makes it entertaining and easy to read. He’s blunt and not afraid to offend when giving you his perspective. I gotta respect that. The treatment center stereotypes are hilarious. This book isn’t claiming you don’t need support groups, rather, the opposite. The goal seems to be awareness, experience, strength and hope. I wish I had this book 8 years ago. Add it to your arsenal on the road to recovery.”

-Xaddict42day

I think this book would be very beneficial for any type of drug user. It’s informative and it covers all issues that addicts face. It’s very enlightening and addresses the stereotypes that society puts upon drug users. In the end, there is no correct stereotype. Drug users come in all shapes and sizes. I would recommend this book to anyone who faces addiction or is in close contact with an addict. Mr. Black’s insight into addiction is far reaching and digs deep into your soul.
