Kyle Keegan was like many teenagers: eager to fit in at school, he experimented with alcohol and drugs. Soon, his abuse of these substances surpassed experimentation and became a ruthless addiction to heroin that nearly destroyed his life. Now in recovery, Keegan tells his remarkable story in Chasing the High. Starting with the early days of alcohol and drug use, Keegan charts his decline into crime and homelessness as his need for heroin surpassed all thoughts of family and friends, of right and wrong. He then goes on to use these experiences to offer guidance and practical advice to other young people who may be struggling with substance abuse. In straightforward, easy-to-understand language and along with the psychiatric expertise of Howard Moss, MD, Keegan discusses what is known about the neurobiology of addiction in young people, how to seek treatment, and how to get the most out of professional help. He also covers such topics as which therapies are used to combat addiction, how to talk to family and friends about substance abuse, and how to navigate risky situations. Both an absorbing memoir and a useful resource for young people. Part of the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative series of books written specifically for teens and young adults, Chasing the High is at once both an absorbing memoir and a useful resource. It offers hope to those who are struggling with substance abuse and will help them to overcome its challenges and to go on to lead healthy, productive lives.

With powerful descriptions of the events that led to drug use, abuse, and addiction the authors succeed in weaving a primer on addiction within the developing saga.

Sorryyy
I am a recovering heroin addict and I have a preteen son. That's how I bumped into this book. I read the rave reviews and thought it might be a good book for my son, but I wanted to read it first to make sure it was appropriate. Let me tell you, this book is not only appropriate it's pretty much a necessity for preteen and teens. It is written for that demographic and the 'drug' stories focus on the dreadful consequences and it no way glorifies that lifestyle. Unfortunately, many books and movies tend to do that. If you're in the position of teaching your child about drugs and alcohol and they're mature for their age (over 13) I'd recommend to you that they read this and re-tell it to you in their own words.

I purchased this book because I work with adolescents who struggle with addiction or have family members who struggle with addiction. This book aids to my library by reaching out to students with a first hand account of what they, or their parent, may be experiencing. I enjoyed the book and will purchase more!

I really recommend for people ages 11-28 because that is kind of the ages one would start feeling mad,sad,depressed, ect

I find the cards very comprehensive. I appreciate the Leitner Method technique for using the flashcards. Keeps me from going overboard
Coiril
Great book to send to someone incarcerated or in rehab who has an addiction problem.

VERY GOOD READ.

This book was absolutely amazing! I couldn't put it down! My brother suffers from heroin addiction which has lead me to my career path of becoming an addiction counselor. It was very insightful not only from a counselor point of view, but I think it would be a great read for anyone suffering from an addiction to any substance, for parents or family members of an addict, and for anyone who is interested in learning more about addiction and what an addict goes through. Can't wait to read other books in this series.
My son asked me to read this. He suffers from addition. It helped me understand what he's going through. I asked my 2 other children to read the book. They too have a renewed outlook on additions, avoidance and help. I can't thank the author enough for sharing his experience. If you have teenagers, you must read this book. It opened my eyes to MANY things.Chasing the High: A Firsthand Account of One Young Person's Experience with Substance Abuse (Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands' Adolescent Mental Health Initiative)
