In the United States, alcoholism leads to 100,000 unnecessary deaths per year. Nearly 3 in 10 American adults are "risky drinkers." 18 million Americans are abusing alcohol regularly. More than 1⁄2 of Americans have a close family member who is an alcoholic. Despite the scope of this problem, there are currently no books published for the broader Christian community that offer Dying for a Drink's unique combination of strong writing, compelling stories, the best in medical science and practice, and clear explication of the timeless spiritual principles of recovery. The revision of this classic work incorporates new information on topics such as: The role of mental illness, childhood trauma, and family origin issues Human motivation and new methods of intervention and treatment Understanding the role of the Holy Spirit and the church community in recovery Prevention and the church's role in an alcohol-saturated society

How can a teenager adopted at birth nearly die because his real mother didn’t get a measles shot? How can a husband’s faith in his wife’s fidelity determine whether radical treatment will cure her or kill her? How can a missed eye doctor appointment reveal a genetic disease? How can doctors choose the right course for a pregnant woman when one may kill her and the other would abort her fetus? Answers to these questions and more are pursued every week on House, M.D. Premiering in November 2004, the darkly quirky medical drama introduced a compelling new character to prime-time television: the sarcastic, abrasive—and brilliant—Dr. Gregory House. Week after week, House has held viewers’ attention with brilliant cast performances and intriguing diagnostic mysteries often solved with daring treatments. But how much of the medical detail is real and how much is fabricated? In The Medical Science of House, M.D., Andrew Holtz, a well-known medical journalist, reveals how medical detectives work—how they follow symptoms to their source. He examines each case in detail—and provides answers for every viewer who has ever wondered about the authenticity of their favorite show.

America has a secret. Hidden beneath underreported and misreported national medical statistics is the sobering fact that alcoholism is the # 2 killer in this country, second only to cancer! There are over 20 million active alcoholics in the United States alone, costing the national economy over 30 billion dollars a year. Many believe that the numbers are even higher, since the treatment costs of the multiple physical complications caused by late stage alcoholism are often not included in alcoholism-related statistics. Alcoholism is a silent and deadly epidemic that is putting a disastrous strain on the entire global community. And it is rapidly getting worse. Latest medical discoveries reveal that genetic make-up, hormones, brain chemistry and enzymes all play a crucial role in the evolution of the disease of alcoholism. Shifting societal norms and cultural trends play another. At present, significant scientific technology and research is focused on exploring ancient techniques and practices to better understand the sources of their healing potential, as well as the role of neuropeptides and the body's chemistry for alternative drug therapies.Dying for a Drink is a timely and groundbreaking book about the three phases of the disease of alcoholism and brings to light the latest developments for successful treatment. The book clearly explains what alcoholism is, what it is not, and, most importantly, what steps to take if you or a loved one is affected. This is a must-read for healthcare professionals, employee assistance workers and individuals.Dr. Meunier's writing style is delightfully user friendly, informative and filled with hope for the individuals and families suffering from this disease.

In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Warswhen only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabres." Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie also spends her free time battling addiction and weathering the wild ride of manic depression. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother, to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, and from having the father of her daughter leave her for a man, to ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed.

In the year 2003, Lady Luck reached out to a hard-living, hard-working family in a small town in Orange County, New York. That was when a team from the Discovery Channel began filming the custom chopper shop of Paul "Senior" Teutul, his son Paulie, and the rest of their highly dysfunctional, totally authentic crew as they did what they do best: make great custom-crafted bikes from the ground up. Within a few episodes, the Teutuls were famous: for their hilarious head-butting, their outrageous yelling, their amazing designs, and, most of all, for being real every step of the way. With their hit show American Chopper turning into the Discovery Channel's top-rated program, the Teutuls became unlikely national icons. Now the Teutuls tell their story as it has never been told before. Senior chronicles his harrowing journey from a hell-raising teen to a star-crossed businessman desperately trying to keep his demons at bay. And Paulie remembers working by his father's side in their ironworks shop-and the bond that developed between them when they first built an EVO-powered custom chopper from scratch. From youngest son Mikey's entrance into the shop to all the other members of the extended OCC family, this is a chronicle of Panheads and Softails turned into gleaming works of art, of Old School design versus Paulie's amazing theme bikes that took custom biking by storm-and earned the Teutuls some of the most famous clients in the world. With over 60 family archive photos that capture this true rags-to-riches saga, ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPERS is the raw, honest story of a family that was born to be wild, how they came together around a shared passion and skill-and how they captured the heart of America.
