What are LitBits?Sheff Brings New Insights to Campuses & Communities re: Addiction

As drug and alcohol addiction continue to plague our campuses and communities, parents and campus leadership struggle to find a working approach for awareness, prevention, and healing. New York Times #1 Bestselling author, David Sheff, has new ideas about the topic having experienced the impact of his son’s meth addiction first-hand.

David Sheff, Clean: Overcoming Addition and Ending America's Greatest Tragedy
Dave Sheff is an ideal speaker for communities looking to address the social impact of addiction and substance abuse and especially for campuses and First Year Experience programs who are trying to get ahead of the social pressures that accompany the new-to-college experience.  Books In Common helped Champaign Public Library and the Glenbard Parent Series tackle this important issue with a series of speaking events in Illinois this week and we’re confident that David’s insights will leave a lasting impact on these families and communities.

[Sheff] spent time with scores of scientists, doctors, counselors, and addicts and their families to learn how addiction works and what can effectively treat it. Clean offers clear, cogent counsel for parents and others who want to prevent drug problems and for addicts and their loved ones no matter what stage of the illness they’re in.

David Sheff is the author of Clean: Overcoming Addition and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy as well as the New York Times #1 Bestseller Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Meth Addiction. For more information about the author and his work, visit booksincommon.org. To schedule an event featuring David, contact Books In Common directly at (541) 318-6288.
