If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, it's best to remember that you - or them - are not alone. There's a lot to understand, a lot to learn and a lot to deal with, emotionally, physically, mentally. Sometimes, the best way to handle the process is by educating yourself. And the best way to do that is to research. Grab a book and get reading. Finding facts, reading the stories of others who have been through the same thing and understanding will ease the process. Here are a list of books about addiction that you may want to invest in to see you through the journey.
