Description

"A gripping, illuminating book . . . Dr. Stein is drawn, in an almost Sherlock Holmesian way, toward trying to fathom and analyze addicts' behavior. . . . hauntingly and successfully, Stein lets readers make a doctor's experiences their own." -- New York Times

"Beautifully told... [with] great insight, empathy and compassion." -- Abraham Verghese, author of The Tennis Partner, My Own Country, and Cutting for Stone

The Addict is the powerful and revealing narrative of Dr. Michael Stein's year-long treatment of a young woman addicted to Vicodin. Dr. Stein has followed up his award winning book The Lonely Patient with "a useful, sensible, and often inspiring guide to how the medical profession does--and should--treat the sick, and the sick at heart." (Francine Prose, O magazine)
