Is someone you love addicted? Have you found yourself wondering if all of your efforts to "help" or "fix" your loved one are really going the right direction? What are the best strategies to help someone in bondage to a substance find real results?

Jason Coombs, a person in long-term recovery and the Founder and CEO of Brick House Recovery, provides answers in his newly released book and Amazon Best Seller Unhooked: How to Help an Addicted Loved On Recover. Jason shares key concepts and highlights Laura's 7 Steps to Spiritual Surrender!

"In this book Unhooked, Jason provides a raw, heart-rending look into the depths of addiction and recovery. More importantly he helps family members facing addiction learn how to 'be okay, even when they are not okay' by utilizing God's enabling, healing and strengthening power as they surrender to Him. This book beautifully guides readers through the process of spiritual surrender, which is key to having peace, success and creating lasting change. I highly recommend this book to anyone facing the devastating difficulties of loved ones dealing with addiction."
