Barun, a former drug addict and a member of the National White House Conference for a Drug Free America, here presents a comprehensive guide to the intervention in and prevention and treatment of drug abuse by children from preschool through adolescence. The author describes his own drug use as a teenager when it was unnoticed by his parents, through heroin addiction and a failed first marriage. His recovery was aided by the Houston drug-rehabilitation center Cenikor, of which he is now CEO, a post he holds in addition to the directorship of Ronald McDonald Children's Charities. Counseling for parents, scripted plans of action and straightforward talk are supplemented by extensive listings of support services in this practical resource. 125,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo; first serial to Parade magazine; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates; author tour.
