This is a well written book by a mother who is like many of us. Mandy believes that the authorities in society charged with keeping our kids safe know what to do and care about them. After leaving her adult son in the ' broader community safety net' until he was almost beyond help due to problems surrounding his methamphetmine addiction, Mandy takes over his rehabilitation. This book documents her struggle to rescue him and finds there are huge gaps in the availability of community based help. M ...more

What a story. We all have had addicts in or in the fringes of our lives, but I've never heard of a story like this one. Mandy Whyte took control of her son's life when meth had destroyed his brain, and in doing so not only saved her son, but provided new and refreshing insight into how to help drug addicts. An honest, sad, moving, hopeful book. It is concise, well-written, and not flowery or self indulgent. Highly recommend to anyone interested in addiction or that has an addict in their lives.
