About this item
Actress and author of the courageous New York Times bestselling memoirHigh on Arrival, Mackenzie Phillips—now one of today’s most visible and outspoken advocates for addiction awareness and education—brings her knowledge and voice to substance abuse recovery for the first time, and shares her experiences for those who are trying to overcome addiction.As the daughter of lead singers of the 1960s band The Mamas and The Papas, Mackenzie Phillips grew up in a wild household and although she found success as an actress, she battled a near-fatal drug addiction. Now, delivered with warmth and candor, Mackenzie Phillips presents the wisdom she gained from her own personal journey through addictions and her understanding of practical treatment from her work as a rehabilitation counselor. Using her own life experiences as examples of proven recovery methods, she shares the tools and holistic approaches she has used and that are available to help you on your journey to recovery.Treatment is not “one-size-fits-all” and Mackenzie encourages addicts and their support networks to research the methods that most effectively address their individual physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. Used by both recovering addicts and their families, Mackenzie’s book is inclusive in its message of hope—and reminds us that sobriety is a lifelong journey of the spirit that allows us to lift ourselves up even when we stumble and fall.
