Product Details


“If you have a teen who is caught up in the dark and destructive world of drug addiction, your entire family is at risk of facing pain and even disintegration. Dr. Lawlis’s book Not My Child is nothing short of genius as it lights the path out of that perilous world. Frank and action oriented, it will become your go-to resource at this most critical time. A copy stays at my fingertips, and I have acquired this book in bulk to share with families in need.”
— Dr. Phil McGraw, host of the Dr. Phil show and #1 New York Times best-selling author

“This is an essential book for all parents—those who feel that their child is immune to addictions, as well as those made numb from the stranglehold when their child becomes another statistic of an addiction. This book is particularly essential as it guides parents to effectively relate with their child in the throes of the addiction—after first helping parents examine themselves and confront their own fears, myths, and misconceptions. Dr. Frank Lawlis presents an invaluable, holistic framework to understand and treat these various catastrophic epidemics that claim and incapacitate the heart and soul of today’s young people. Drawing on antidotes from an arsenal of medicine, neuroscience, healthy relationships, and the healing power of vital spirituality, he guides parents to reclaim an active, caring parenting role for their child to arrest the deadening destructiveness of addictions.”
— John T. Chirban, Ph.D., Th.D., Harvard Medical School

“As an intervention specialist, I work directly with families affected by addiction, and Dr. Lawlis’s information from the latest neuroscience research will empower parents to stand up and say ‘Not my child.’ Dr. Lawlis gives readers a practical, compassionate, and insightful guide for families dealing with one of the biggest epidemics ravaging America: teen addiction. Based on years of clinical experience, Dr. Lawlis explains that addiction affects not just the addicted individual, but the entire family unit.”
— Debbie Knauss, RN, LCDC, President/CEO, VIP Recovery (

“Finally, a comprehensive look at the impact of addiction on the individual and the family! Dr. Lawlis draws on extensive experience, current neuroscience, and remarkable compassion to offer real and understandable solutions to dealing with addiction in our most precious populations—teenagers and young adults. It is time that we stand up against our nation’s most insidious epidemic. It will take a societal and cultural effort if we are to fight skillfully and successfully. Dr. Lawlis is a true leader in this fight, a man with courage, knowledge, and above all, love for those suffering from the disease of addictive illness. This is must-read for anyone who is ready to stand up and say, ‘Notmychild’!”
— Mandy Baker, M.S., LCDC, Executive Clinical Director and Vice President, Origins Recovery Centers
