"A kooky bus with syringes painted on the side used to drive around my neighbourhood. The man behind the wheel was Raphael Aron, the anti-drug guy. Far from an armchair commentator, Raphael is someone who has actually gone to the shadows of society to help people, and returned with an original insight." - John Safran, presenter, ABC television and Triple J radio. It is not possible to read this book without being moved and inspired. It provides the reader with a unique insight into the mind and soul of a drug addict. The Australian market has seen the publication of a number of books which deal with addictions. This book is different. The book juxtaposes the lives of two addicts, using recorded personal and intimate experiences and emotions. Their eloquent diaries are published in the book together with the session notes of their counsellor and author, Raphael Aron. The book reveals the raw nature of addiction and the hold it has over those who suffer from it. The contrasting stories and journeys of two young people are compelling, as are the incredible efforts and insightful techniques applied by the counsellor to help battle their addiction.
