by Mark Lipp
- Is what you are doing to help your Addict just not working?

If you are the parent of an Addict, or any family member dealing with an Addict and looking for help in dealing with the familial issues caused by an addict in your family like codependency, and enabling…you have definitely come to the right place and found your home. If you have come here because you know a family struggling with a member who is addicted to drugs and or alcohol, you also have come to the right spot We can definitely and truly help you. You see I know what you and your family are going through. I have lived with a brother who is an addict and a daughter who is an addict. I know what it takes to get your life and that of your families back to normal, because I too have lived that life. Few things are more damaging then dealing with an addict in your family. All the damage done to relationships, and the codependency and enabling of and by certain family members with the addict, all help to create and fuel “Familial Damage”. I understand the infighting, the problems with enabling, and the destroyed relationships. I understand and have lived in anger generated when dealing with family struggles caused by an Addicts behavior. I am not just a life coach in this area but an Author, Mentor, Adviser, and motivational speaker. I share and understand an empathy that only someone who has made this journey can have.

This book gave me so much comfort. As the mother of a heroin addict it was so comforting to know that I am not the only one. The author wrote with such authenticity; I could relate to every word. How he burned up his daughter’s stripper clothes (been there, except I cut them up). The revolving door of boyfriends that just got her into worse trouble. How he worried aout the safety of his family the deeper and darker her addiction got. His obsession with trackig his daughter and her whereabouts. I read this book as if I was reading excerpts from my life with my daughter. Everytime a nice family reads about another nice family having a drug addict in in their midst; it helps us all heal. It shows us that drug addiction does not discriminate and happens to the best parents and worst parents alike. This book helped me to let go a little of the shame and stigma. God bless Mr. Lipp for sharing his story

This is a wonderful book. My husband and I lost a daughter to drug addiction last December and I found Mark’s story to be healing, and although parts are painful, they are also comforting because it let’s us know we are not alone.

Mr. Lipp knows what it means to be the parent of an addict and the story of his journey with his drug addicted daughter is inspiring and encouraging for parents going through the same thing. Would recommend for any parent of a drug addicted child!
