THE 7 STEPS TO HELP YOUR SON IN ADDICTION RECOVERY: Understanding Addiction as Rooted in Trauma, and How Your Son Will Recover
by Dorcas Wanganga
How do you get your addicted son to recover without the painful roller coaster even if you had tried it all before and failed many times? Please keep reading to find out…

You found out about the addiction and did what any mom should do… help! To your shock and disappointment, things got quickly out of hand, and he got worse!

You got sucked into your son's addiction and realized how difficult it was to help him. The panic, fear, and pain have almost been too much to bear. The constant relapses and never-ending anxiety have made you sick. It’s like a monster haunting your family day and night.

The stigma around addiction did not allow for day-to-day conversations, and it became a lonely path for you. And you constantly wished to find relief!

I was that mom. And I had to find the peace I sought because it was clear the common methods of helping an addicted loved one did not work. I had to understand the science, possible root causes, and spiritual aspect behind it. The journey helped me discover important steps for recovery, and I could not keep it to myself.

I found out, as common as addiction is, it is, it is still not well understood, confronted, and treated.

You don’t have to go through the power struggle, trying to help someone who is not ready for help, but you are still a very critical part of his recovery.

So, what do you do when all the treatments your son received have not stopped the addiction or the relapses and he has rejected all your love and help?

Robin's Review: This is not my usual genre but this is a well written story. This was a kind and intelligent book full of sound wisdom and helpful resources. The authors first-hand knowledge of addiction makes this a go to for not only parents, but anyone dealing with the demons of addiction in their family. 

Dorcas Wanganga discusses the science of addiction but also adds in the spiritual side of dealing with this far-reaching problem.


Thanks so much for a review copy of this book. I am voluntarily leaving a review of my personal opinion.
