Causes and Conditions: A Life Experience in Addiction and Recovery (Paperback)
Causes and Conditions takes a comprehensive look at a life lived in addiction and one person's journey to find recovery. Through his sixteen years in active substance use, Joe Conniff takes us through his experience of growing up in the prescription opioid crisis, post 9/11 military life, and eventually homelessness and despair on the streets of Seattle. This book offers a detailed lens into the author's experiences with addiction, trauma, the criminal legal system, and programs and spiritual practices that led him to long term recovery. Causes and Conditions is a first-hand account of what it takes to create an addict, and what it took for this one to find freedom.
