George Leary was a youth counselor, surrounded by kids all day, and yet he failed to see that his own child was using and abusing drugs. After facing his denial, fear and grief, he made it his purpose in life to work with addicts and educate parents on how to help their kids. In his book, he answers important questions such as: "what are the warning signs of alcohol or drug addiction?" and "how can a parent intervene and find treatment for the child and family?"
George E. Leary, Jr. provides mental health services to addicts and those living with HIV/AIDS. He established and operated two recovery houses in Baltimore and served for nine years on a mobile crisis intervention team.
