Hi, I am living with a polydrug addict. There have been multiple overdoses and things are getting bad. Can anyone recommend some books on understanding addiction or living with loved ones that are addicts? I need to understand this disease better. Anything you've read that has helped will really be appreciated.

Hi every76years.

Living with an addict can be SO diffucult.I honestly don't think it's something anyone can truly understand unless they have lived it.

There's many books out there about addiction if you do a Google search.I have read so many but tbh,I can't think of the titles right at this moment.

The best info I have found really is at
