“Alive Again” by Dr. Howard Samuels


Thank you so much, Dr. Samuels, for such an inspiring and hopeful book. This book is especially useful for today’s drug-ridden culture.  www.blogcritics.org

If you have any kind of addiction and truly want help, seek ye first a professional therapist then buy Alive Again, and follow it feverishly day by day. It just may save your life and it is worth saving.  www.seattlepi.com

This book comes from the unique perspective of a recovering drug-addict with now 28 years clean and sober, and I feel really hits the mark! It is well written, poignant, and shows that with hard work and the help of others, Dr. Howard Samuels was able to overcome his addiction to drugs and alcohol and later set upon a path to help others recover with the creation of his own treatment center.  Dane G. on Amazon
