Book: Up From Down - A True Story Of Recovery From Addiction by Ted Adamson
|4.3 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Ted Adamsonabout this book: This book gives a unique view of recovery from Addiction. It was inspired by James Frey fraudulent "A Million Little Pieces". I thought it was high time somebody really write about what living in a drug treatment program was like by somebody who really lived it.
The title was inspired by Booker T. Washington's "Up From Slavery" since addiction is also a kind of slavery.
This book has won several awards including the 2012 National Indie Excellence Award in the Addiction & Recovery category.
Carol at the Book Nook Club wrote: "I have never read such an honest and clear account of a life that went down the "wrong path".
Midwest Book Review wrote: "Up From Down" is an excellent and thoughtful memoir , not to be overlooked."
Grady Harp, Amazon.com Hall of Fame Reviewer wrote: "This is a transparent revelation of the jail and rehab and court system abuses as well and an examination of all the aspects of treatment for addiction"
