Millions of people are caught in the vortex of addiction to alcohol, prescription, and non-prescription drugs. It leaves confusion, despair, and broken relationships in its wake.

Jeff VanVonderen provides answers to the many questions facing those with addictions and those looking to help them, including:

- Why total family wellness is essential to long-range recovery
- What friends, loved ones, and the church should—and shouldn’t—do to help
