Paduka Press is proud to offer the riveting debut work from Robert Hobbs, Heroin—Living and Dying with an Addict You Love, How to Survive when Everyone Dies. Available in bookstores on April 18, 2017.

Heroin is powerful. It kills more than 13,000 people each year, and it can kill the loved ones of the addicted even if they have never laid eyes on it. Discover how the epidemic of heroin addiction kills our children, destroys their parents, and shatters families, from an American father’s firsthand account of his experiences battling his son’s addiction.

Author Robert Hobbs candidly shares his personal tragedy and emotional journey while developing a comprehensive how-to guide that all parents, loved ones, and members of the affected community must read. As this enthralling, true-story drama unfolds, readers will learn about heroin and how to navigate the uncharted waters of the heroin addiction recovery process. Readers will learn to prepare for overdose, detoxification, rehabilitation, intensive outpatient programming (IOP), and the recovering addict’s return from living in hopeless infatuation with heroin’s never-ceasing seduction to a normal, yet clean and sober life.

Robert Jordan, NCAC, CAC, CAMSII, Director of the Extension a Marietta, GA Treatment Center said, “The Book was totally riveting, up-close, and intensely emotional. I’ve been in the addiction field for nearly 10 years, worked with families and Parents and have shared their traumas and experiences, but never from an in-depth perspective as Heroin—Living and Dying with an Addict You Love, How to Survive when Everyone Dies. This book is a must read for loved ones of someone struggling; it is valuable for information, intervention, and hope.

The Amazon Kindle version of the release will be offered at no charge on opening day.
