Author Annie Highwater is a Writer, Speaker, and Family Advocate. She is a life-long researcher of Behavioral Science with particular interests in family pathology and concepts of dysfunction and conflict. In 2016, Annie published her memoir, Unhooked: A Mother’s Story of Unhitching from the Roller Coaster of Her Son’s Addiction. Her story is especially relevant in helping us all understand the personal challenges facing parents and family members, and how family dynamics both help and hinder the recovery process. Annie is in the midst of completing her second book, which will be out in late 2017.
There are more people affected by addiction than addicted. We are in the midst of an epidemic of addiction that is not only not stopping, it’s not slowing down. My mission is to promote hope and healthy dialogue regarding the profound impact addiction, mental health, alcoholism and substance use disorder (SUD) have upon those in the peripheral. The “entourage.” As well as to offer support, information and encouragement to the stressed out, affected Moms, Dads, family members, partners and friends of anyone struggling. I believe no one should have to go through it alone.
(I do not work with, for or promote any political party, organization or specific recovery process exclusively.)
