Publishers Description "Addiction is a chronic, progressive and incurable disease," says author John C. Fleming, a Louisiana physician who specializes in treating individuals and families facing the problem. "Though treatable, recovery rates are very low." Prevention is the only guaranteed way to avoid the life-long, personal-and-family misery associated with drug abuse, Fleming maintains. In his ground-breaking book, Fleming shows parents how to truly "drug-proof" their children. Parents wanting to help their children avoid drugs altogether as well as parents who already face the prospect of a drug-using child or teen will benefit greatly by reading and implementing the techniques described in his book.

A Must-Read Book for All Parents Jan 4, 2007
Dr. Fleming has written a "must read" book for all parents! He gives specific suggestions on how to raise your child from birth through the difficult teen years so that they will not fall into the trap of using addictive substances, from tobacco to alcohol to drugs of all kinds. Well written with substance. Emphasis is given to raising children in a Christian home with lots of love and trust while at the same time, with teenagers in particular, to "trust but verify".
Very useful book on preventing addiction! Dec 28, 2006
This is a great book for parents who want to keep their children from becoming alcoholics and drug addicts - a parent's worst nightmare. It's a useful resource that both gives practical advice to parents as well as helps us understand the body's response to addiction. For instance, Fleming doesn't just tell us to start concerning ourselves with our children's exposure to drugs and alcohol when they reach the frightful teen years but implores us to realize that preventing addiction begins in elementary school. Also, this isn't simply a `just say no' book full of trite platitudes but a well-researched yet readable approach to the issues at hand. I highly recommend this book.
Preventing Addiction by Dr. J. C. Fleming: A Review Dec 10, 2006
This excellent book is designed for parents of teens and youngsters who need the ammunition to prevent addiction problems. The author, being a Doctor of Medicine in Family Practice, has seen his share of addiction problems, so you are getting the advice of a professional in the area. His organization, descriptions, and methods of combatting and preventing addiction are just unsurpassed. The book is written in a straight forward manner with language that non-professionals can easily understand. You feel as if you were seated in Dr. Fleming's office, talking with him one on one. The book is just a superior resource. Sincerely, Dr. Lee Walker
