AprašymasFalling Trees, Color Blind Scientists, and Addiction explores the what and why's of addiction. We present information on the devasting effect addiction has on individuals and families. Current information and research are offered to the reader in gaining a better understanding of the challenge's individuals and families face. We explain the different faces of addiction and how difficult it can be to define addiction. Opinions and experiences can vary from person to person and setting to setting. We describe the problem in these terms: if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If someone has a substance abuse problem that has not come up on the radar, does that mean he or she does not have a problem? This is what motivated us to write this book.
