This book recounts the powerful story of how a pastor successfully recovered from the disease of alcoholism. Alexander DeJong talks openly about his long onetime struggle with alcoholism -- his descent into heavy drinking, his shame and his fears of discovery, and his growing understanding of the disease through his family's support, group therapy, and the care of a Christian physician.More than just a moving story, this book also offers hope as it helps readers understand the social, medical, and psychological elements of this widespread disease. Dying for a Drink balances the personal narratives of Alex DeJong and his wife with professional insights from Dr. Martin Doot, Alex's treating physician. He explains the disease of addiction and provides sound, experience-based advice for those seeking an avenue for recovery. Each of the five chapters in the book features questions for discussion and reflection.Sensitive, honest, and caring, Dying for a Drink is a valuable resource for churches, counselors, health-care professionals, and individuals and their families who are in the grip of alcoholism.
