Addict In The Family

by Dr. Andrew Byrne

Reviews From The Profession

Review by Robert Newman, M.D.

Addict in the Family by Dr. Andrew Byrne is a very valuable contribution -- addressing a problem that is extremely widespread, affecting huge members of people directly and indirectly, but associated with so much stigma and shame that there's an understandable reluctance to seek the facts from authoritative sources. This book provides answers to many questions, and does so in straightforward, clear and yet in no way condescending or patronizing manner. Sadly, the lack of information regarding drug use and its treatment applies to physicians and other healthcare providers almost to the same degree as to 'lay people.' Accordingly, this book by Dr. Byrne would be very worthwhile reading for his medical and nursing colleagues!
