Finding Purpose and Meaning: Sally Survives Her Brief, Nasty Dance with Psychiatry
Finding Purpose and Meaning: Sally Survives Her Brief, Nasty Dance with Psychiatry is the second book of four in the Freedom from Addiction series. The character Sally is an addict who struggles with substance abuse. Her story delves into the dark realm of how addicts struggling with abstinence are inadvertently intoxicated when a psychiatrist prescribed drugs to help her cope with the underlying problems her substance abuse hid by using.
There are dangers when dancing with biological psychiatry. The prescribed drugs are extensively explored in this volume. While some pay with their lives for the dance, others like Sally get off the dance floor to live another day and discover an altogether different life.
Abstinent, the addict finds purpose and meaning in their life as they start to explore the gifts of humanity they have been given.
Commenting on the story is longtime therapist, Dr. Alexander Polgar.
