Breathmarks: Poems from people finding their voices

Addiction. Overdose. Death. Everyone is talking about the opioid epidemic. Here is a fresh, hopeful insider perspective: poems written by people in long-term recovery.

From the residents at one of the largest recovery programs in the US comes a collection of poems forged in the fires of suffering and hope. The struggles of early sobriety, the aftermath of relapse, and the joy of a new way of life are revealed in these pages. Whether you’re in recovery yourself, or have a loved one who is struggling, you will come away enlightened and encouraged.

Available on Kindle and in paperback, all proceeds from the sales of this book benefit the poetry group at Helping Up Mission.
