The pandemic of prescription drug addiction afflicts not only abusers, but also legitimate patients. Many are prescribed potent opiates to ease their pain. This relief can come at a high price. Amber takes you through her tumultuous journey into drug addiction; both legal and illegal. Her brutally honest memoir, Wreckage: Prescription Drug Addiction - Caught by Surprise, speaks to people of all types about this looming enigma. She sheds light on the difference between addiction and dependence, and shares how she also learned to endure pain and other related issues. Through drastic changes in life, her dry sense of humor brings comic relief to difficult situations. Her motive is to reassure anyone battling these problems that there are healthy ways to cope. With education and understanding, addicts and their loved ones can look this baffling enemy in the eye and beat it.
