“With input from experts in the field of addiction, alcoholism and family therapy...this book is a guidebook for anyone needing direction, hope and healing.” - Sherry Gaba, LCSW, Certified Recovery Coach and author

“Unbroken’s most important lesson is that we are all vulnerable. And only after we acknowledge this vulnerability can we truly start living.” - Daniel Skinner, Ph.D, Ohio University
