The poems of In the Months of My Son’s Recovery inhabit the voice and standpoint of the mum of a heroin addict who enters recovery. With clear perception and precise emotional tones, Kate Daniels explores recovery experiences from a couple of, evolving vantage points, including active addiction, 12-step remedy, co-occurring mental illness and addiction (referred to as dual diagnosis), and relapse. These intimately voiced, harrowing poems reveal the collateral damage that addiction inflicts on friends and families, along with the main damage sustained by addicts themselves. Offering bold descriptions of medical processes, maternal love, and the opportunity of hope as an antidote to despair, this timely collection offers a firsthand account of the various crises on the heart of the opioid epidemic.
