Steven Sellers...the Addict...was at the bottom of his bottle..literally. His addiction to alcohol had escalated to an average of two-fifths of vodka a day. Forced into a detox center and then treatment, his thirst for the Beast caused him to forfeit his lucrative career, a 19-year marriage, two young daughters...and his soul.
The Beast had dominated the slow, methodical destruction of everything good and moral about Steven's life. Beginning with a face-to-face encounter with a stranger in the Minneapolis detox center, The Addict realizes he must finally confront the Beast and do battle for his future.
The Sobering Truth: One Man's Journey From Failure to Faith follows Steven to his breakdown, physically and spiritually. It addresses life in treatment both in and out of the hospital and the ever present threat of relapse. This story describes how the Addict can move beyond sobriety and learns how to embrace life in recovery; how to fill the hollow void that the ravenous Beast left in its place.
Written for those who may be battling the Beast in their own lives, or for the family members desperate to understand their loved one, The Sobering Truth reveals insight about the inner workings of the Addict and most importantly, hope for a God-directed recovery.
