Lisa Gennosa is a dedicated Physician Assistant, wife and mother who grew up the third child of a liquor and narcotics agent. Her breadth of exposure to healthcare, the legal field and parenting an addict provided the foundation to reveal the things we least like to talk about, but most need to.

The words that came to be a book were originally nothing more than a therapeutic purge, however they ultimately sparked a resource guide for loved ones and a comprehensive plan for measurable legislative changes in the face of surging levels of substance use and mental health disorders.

Through the close relationship with her son and the many patients, inmates and professionals that collectively provided a breadth of perspective, she recognized the potential to help others struggling with the epidemic of addiction.
