American Overdose is a three-part treatise written to provide the who, what, when, where, and why about our national crisis: addiction. Book 1, American Overdose, discusses the ways in which opioids are dangerous and are the source of the expansion of addiction in the USA; how the "pushers" target suburbia and the rural communities; and the frightening growth rate. Book 2, Treatment Talk, is a must-read for those considering treatment. It explores what is available, what works, what to expect, and do's and don'ts. Book 3, Killing Family, covers the ways in which everything changes when addiction comes to visit the family. This book is written to help everyone in the family live a healthier life and to know how to adapt.
