This is the compelling story of one family's devastating struggles through addiction-the seemly white picket fence family's downfall. It takes you through "typical" teenage underage drinking and house parties, following the misuse of recreational drugs that lead to major accidents, arrests, and tragedy. What should have been a successful happy family's future became a life of addiction, depression, and lies that all lead to the destruction of one family. Ryan and Matt, twin brothers, were your all-American boys. Some would say everything going for them-good looks, smart, athletic, and musically gifted. On the outside they had it all, but on the inside, they both had a dark secret hidden from everyone that led them both down a black hole. The book talks about a mother's and daughter's journey to help her sons and brothers get the help they needed. Fighting every step of the way in a world that stigmatizes against addiction, which has very limited resources and treatment.
