Item description for Dying for a Drink: What You and Your Family Should Know About Alcoholism by Anderson Spickard Jr & Barbara R. Thompson...
Overview In the United States, alcoholism leads to 100,000 unnecessary deaths per year. Nearly 3 in 10 American adults are "risky drinkers." 18 million Americans are abusing alcohol regularly. More than 1/2 of Americans have a close family member who is an alcoholic. Despite the scope of this problem, there are currently no books published for the broader Christian community that offer Dying for a Drink's unique combination of strong writing, compelling stories, the best in medical science and practice, and clear explication of the timeless spiritual principles of recovery. The revision of this classic work incorporates new information on topics such as: The role of mental illness, childhood trauma, and family origin issues Human motivation and new methods of intervention and treatment Understanding the role of the Holy Spirit and the church community in recovery Prevention and the church's role in an alcohol-saturated society

Dying for a Drink by Dr. Anderson Spickard, Jr. May 18, 2006
As the child of an alcohol dependent father who has since passed, I was able to better understand his sickness. From this book, which I have recommended many times over to providers who treat the alcohol dependent patient, I gained an education in 14 days of reading that would have taken many years otherwise. Thank you Dr. Spickard
