Excerpt from Document:

Perhaps the most positive attribute of Sheff's book is that he succeeds in raising awareness about the effects of drug use on the abuser, as well as the cumulative effect on not just the family, but the community at large. Whether we have an addiction in our own families is less important than the resources that are necessary to treat these addictions and the costs to society both psychologically and fiscally they engender. In addition, Sheff's verbiage could not do more to allow us into his heart and mind ...? but to see that anyone, regardless of their gifts, beauty, intellect, and personality, changes into a nightmare of themselves when they give their soul to drugs (Knox).
