A practical handbook for anyone who suspects (or knows) someone they care about is a drug user. Drawing on the tragic loss of his own son to a heroin overdose and over 20 years working as a counsellor, Tony Trimingham cuts through the media hype and politicking to address the real issues facing the families and friends of someone struggling with addiction. Filled with constructive suggestions and strategies, Not My Family Never My Child is aimed at supporting parents, family/whānau members and loved ones of drug users and the users themselves through the difficult journey of drug dependency. It includes detailed information on: warning signs, early intervention, coping and survival strategies, treatment and where to go for additional advice and support.
