Product Description

Nobody would say that drug abuse isn't a problem the world over. But add the world "legal" to "drug abuse" in the same question, and responses might differ. Hidden Addictions: A Pastoral Response to the Abuse of Legal Drugs takes a hard look at the many people who are addicted to legal prescribed drugs and gives its own prescription of spiritual counseling, healing, and aid to readers who wish to join the fight against a world ravaged by complacency, psychochemical numbness, and social-systemic dysfunction.
