Summary
The lesson of letting go, learned by the codependent mother of an addicted son, a charming but defiant relapser. Hope and despair alternate as all attempts to help the son fail. For her own sanity, Sandy must stop trying to control Joey and his disease; however, her love is palpable and undying. Parents will relate to this stark, hopeful tale
Summary
By the age of twenty, Joey has OD'd, attempted suicide, quit college, survived a near-fatal car accident, done time behind bars, and been kicked out of rehab. Now manipulative and hateful, the once sweet and charming Joey is long gone. This is the poignant story of a defiant addict and the mother who won't give up on him. She finally realizes that it hurts more to hang on than to let go, and that letting go is not the same thing as giving up
