Praise from Jim Harbaugh S.J., author of A 12-Step Approach to the Sunday Readings and A 12-Step Approach to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius


“I recommend Tim Elhajj’s Dopefiend to anyone interested in chemical dependency and recovery from it. The book’s subtitle, “A Father’s Journey from Addiction to  redemption,” more accurately sums up its content. Like Franz Wright or Mary Karr, Elhajj lets the vivid details contained in his punchy prose make his points for him, without editorializing or preaching. The lean story that results gets right to the point: it’s
possible for an addict to change, with time and grace, from an inept and disconnected father to exactly the kind of example and confidant a son needs when the son has become an adult.”
