Although many books deal with the problem of addiction -- how to get help, the harm it can do, and useful treatments -- few books discuss the tragic implications for the children. Yet these children can be robbed of their childhoods, isolated, abused, confused as to what is happening, and deprived of their own feelings of self-esteem and worth. In fact, the child of an addicted parent may grow up with more difficulties and hidden wounds than the addicted parent. "Hidden Epidemic" deals with just such children and points out the pervasiveness of this problem, and what to do about it. Dr. Craig Rikards story is not only one of medicine, therapy, psychology and prayer, it is also the very personal story of his own childhood living in a pretty home in suburbia, where no one could hear the screams. slaps, and abusive language. In spite of such a serious subject, the book is fascinating, the journey hard, and yet there is hope and light for those caught within the grasp of addictive parents or caretakers.
