Drug addiction is terrifying. Drug addiction is gut-wrenching. Drug Addiction is all-consuming not only for the addicted person, but also for family and friends. Written from a dad's perspective, The War Within: My Story is a book about addiction and a family thrown into the horrifying situation of dealing with it in the best way that they know how. Because of chronic pain and a series of bad choices, Ryan and his family found themselves in the midst of a war-a war to save Ryan from the demons of addiction chasing him. Follow Ryan's dad, Josif, as he crossed one hurdle after another to save his son. There were times when Josif was weak and weary but faith, hope, and love kept him from giving up. Yes, this book is about addiction, but make no mistake, it is ultimately about faith, hope, and love-the faith that Jesus would see them through the struggle, the hope that He would crush the binding chains of addiction, and a dad's love that wouldn't give up on his son.
