Addiction and Grace

by Gerald G. May, MD

In Addiction and Grace: Love and Spirituality in the Healing of Addictions, Dr. Gerald May describes the processes of attachment that lead to addiction and examines the relationship between addiction and spiritual awareness. Drawing on his experience as a psychiatrist working with the chemically dependent, May emphasizes how addiction represents a doomed attempt to assert control over our lives. Addiction and Grace is a compassionate and wise treatment of this important topic, offering a critical yet hopeful guide to a place of freedom based on contemplative spirituality.
