Okay so it seems like I start these posts with a joke about how long it has been since I last posted, cringe, it is pretty obvious I have seriously neglected my blog. Time to move onwards and upwards.
This is an update to my last post, I did get ‘Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs’ from the library and read it last fall. I have to say I really liked the compassionate viewpoint the author has regarding addiction, and how he challenges long held beliefs around addiction.
I have now recommended this book to clients in recovery coaching and to coaching clients who may be dealing with a friend or family member that struggles with addiction. It is certainly worth a read. I hope many people do read the book and that it helps bring about a much needed change in perception and treatment of people that struggle with addiction.
