Description - Dear William: A Father's Memoir of Addiction, Recovery, Love, and Loss by David Magee
Award-winning columnist and author David Magee addresses his poignant story to all those who will benefit from better understanding substance misuse so that his hard-earned wisdom can save others from the fate of his late son, William.
This is more than just another addiction story. It's about a father making sense of his son's addiction and death while seeking his own identity, a broken family fighting to repair itself, and, ultimately, a commitment to making a difference from and through grief.
In times more uncertain than ever before, Dear William answers the call for increased attention to individual and family substance use and mental health--. His is a message that students and parents throughout the world need to hear. And as a creator of the national William Magee Institute for Student Wellbeing at the University of Mississippi, David Magee is on a mission to find and share solutions to one of America's biggest problems that touches too many high school and college students-self-medication and substance use disorder.
Through a story of family destruction and rebirth, this inspirational book guides readers toward finding purpose, resilience, and breaking the cycles that damage too many individuals and the people who love them.
David Magee wrote this moving book so that any deeply suffering soul can know-and experience-that devastation can be repaired, voids can be filled, and peace, even profound, lasting happiness, is possible.
