My name is Emmanuel S. John, MA, MSW, LCSW.  As a therapist with more than 34 years experience in the addiction field I have gained many treatment and recovery tools that I would like to share with you.  When I began considering retirement I was bothered by the fact that I had gained a lifetime of valuable experience in the field and that I was about to withdrawal it from public access; information that is obviously still greatly needed.  That is why I have written both Addiction: Why They Use and Addiction: Am I Powerless.   My clients and the treatment programs I have worked for have been very fortunate as we found a lot of long term recovery and even lifetime successes.   I can’t help everyone personally and I won’t be around forever but my insight can still be shared with you through these books.  Please read the books; I wrote them for you and the people you care about.
