By home we do not, of course, mean a clapboard farmhouse or a high-rise condominium, but rather a place of serenity within ones self as comfortable as a favorite room.

Many of us know moments of serenity in our daily lives, moments which bring us joy and carry through lifes challenges. People addicted to alcohol and other drugs, however, never experience relief from the ravages of the disease. They often describe themselves as being uncomfortable in their own skin. This book is about people who have lived in the alienating territory of addiction and have made the long journey back -- people who finally feel at home within themselves.In The Way Home, the miracle of recovery is revealed through the stories of four such individuals.

Although names and details have been changed to preserve their anonymity, these are real people. They have been through treatment at Hazelden and represent those whose lives have been changed through that experience -- people of all ages and myriad walks of life.Thousands have begun this journey of healing at Hazelden and taken the tools of recovery into their lives where they continue to enjoy the miracle of sobriety.

Their stories allow us to witness the arduous journey they embarked upon and to share in the joys and sorrows encountered along the way. We invite you to live with Andy and Joanna, Liz and Nate to experience their true struggles for recovery and discovery of hope and serenity.What people are saying about The Way Home. . .The Way Home is one of the best books I have ever read about healing from alcoholism and drug addiction.

It offers a compassionate look at a terribly misunderstood disease. The stories in this book are beautifully written and filled with insights for healing individuals, families, and entire communities.Melody Beattie, author of Stop Being Mean to Yourself and Codependent No MoreAlcoholism and drug addiction devastate millions of Americans and take a terrible toll on families. The Way Home offers an inside look at how Hazelden helps people who are struggling with alcohol and drugs reclaim their lives. This book offers education, solutions, and hope.George McGovern, author of Terry: My Daughters Life-and-Death Struggle with AlcoholismAddiction is tough.

Recovery is a relief. And the distance between the two depends on how you do it. The Way Home is about despair, compassion, hope, self-love, and success. Its about not have to make the journey alone. Its about Hazelden, where lives are saved. Its a truly wonderful book.Sharon Gless, actressThis powerful book lifts back the cloak of secrecy that surrounds addiction.

It tells the real human story of substance abuse treatment that has restored the health of so many. I am proud to work with Hazelden to help the many who are still unable to gain access to treatment, so they may get the care they need.U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone, D-Minn.
