The wreckage of addiction lies scattered around too many people—from the one who is or was addicted to those in relationship with that person. Age-old culprits of drugs, alcohol, and gambling are joined by newer addictions, such as food, prescription medication, shopping, pornography, and technology. Left unaddressed, addiction devastates lives now and makes it difficult to see a positive way forward.
For anyone struggling with an addiction, attempting to live in recovery, or seeking to understand the mind of an addict they love, Dr. Jantz’s newest book is a lifeline. In it he helps readers answer tough questions, such as
- Am I an addict?
- Why is the first step so hard?
- How can I put my life back together?
- Where do I go from here?
Addiction doesn’t have to have the last word. Healing the Scars of Addiction offers a holistic approach to healing so that readers can reclaim their lives and move forward in hope.
“Pain is inevitable–but misery is optional. If you are miserable because of some addiction, some repetitive pattern of behavior that only brings you suffering, then opt for freedom! In Healing the Scars of Addiction, Dr. Jantz has provided the tools you need to heal, to overcome–to be free!”

“Healing the Scars of Addiction provides understanding, helpful steps, and realistic hope for those who are struggling with various forms of addiction and want to reclaim their lives from addiction and move forward into a healthier life. I highly recommend it!”
