Item Description...

A firsthand look at what it means---and what it takes---for young addicts to get clean and stay clean

"To suddenly think, 'Hey, wait a minute, I'm 21. I just got sober. I can't drink like all my friends ever again?' I remember thinking my whole life had crumbled." Welcome to recovery from a young addict's perspective. Written by MTV's Chris Beckman with contributions from dozens of teens and twentysomethings in recovery, Clean is part autobiography, part addiction and recovery primer, and part wake-up call about what's really going on in schools, cars, malls, and wherever else kids come in contact with drugs and alcohol. Beckman, whose out-of-control drinking and drugging lasted more than a decade before he got sober at age 24, uses his story to illustrate the book's fundamental message that recovery at a young age is very different from recovery in adulthood. "We get clean at 20 and feel like we're still 13 emotionally," he writes. Clean is the real thing: an honest, nonjudgmental, peer-to-peer lifeline for young people thinking about experimenting with drugs, for those who are already experimenting or those who are already addicted, and for families and friends who want to understand and help.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Clean  Jul 14, 2008
I bought this book for my son when he was toying with drugs. I'd seen a presentation of the book and author on Good Morning America and thought it might provide some personal insights for my teenage son. I don't think he found it helpful and neither did I.
Educational, Interesting and Inspiring  Mar 3, 2006
I would highly recommend this book for anyone who has a young family member or a loved one with an addiction. The Author does an excellent job expressing and explaining the life of the afflicted in a way anyone can understand. If he can overcome the obstacles/addictions in his life than so can most anyone. This is a must read for those who seek hope for their addictions and it will provide hope for their families as well. I have a new found empathy for the struggles of an addict/alcoholic, and a new found hope for them too.
Helpful for those who love an addict  Feb 24, 2006
I felt this book helped me understand the addict's mind a little better, and how when a normal person would think someone would hit bottom it isn't so with the addict.
Anyone with an addict in their lives would benefit from reading this book.

I didn't care for the "MTV" style of writing however, when another person's story appeared intermittantly inbetween Chris Beckman's. My attention span isn't that short that I can't read his story first and then someone elses. Why intertwine them?
Clean: A New Generation In Recovery Speaks Out  Feb 23, 2006
An outstanding book for the addicted and for the families and loved ones of the addicted. I can only speak personally for the families and friends of those affected by addiction. This story makes you realize that only the addicted person can get themselves clean and into recovery. Family and friends can only love them - and then provide support to them AFTER they admit their addiction AND when they are actively involved in their recovery program. Anything family members and loved ones do before this only ENABLES the addict to continue their active destructive addiction.
EXCELLENT BOOK! "CLEAN: A New Generation in Recovery Speaks Out" is a highly-recommended, well-written, informative, MUST-READ for anyone struggling with addiction, as well as family members, friends, and loved ones of those affected by addiction.

Chris Beckman, a former cast member of MTV's Real World:Chicago, shares his journey through addiction to recovery with refreshing frankness and honesty. In addition to Beckman's story, "Clean" also contains accounts of other young people dealing with addiction.

"Clean is also filled with an abundance of useful facts, resources, and websites. Topics include:

* Risk factors for addiction
* The Substances
* Side Effects
* Finding Help
* Recovery
* Health

Most importantly, "Clean" is filled with HOPE. Chris Beckman's story and others prove that addictions can be overcome, and recovery is definitely possible and achievable. DON'T WAIT -- GET "CLEAN" TODAY!!
