Missie Huber's older brother overdosed on methadone when she was nineteen. In the years following his death, her father succumbed to alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver and her younger brother, Mark, struggled with heroin addiction. Missie swore she would do everything in her power to ensure that her children did not follow in their footsteps, then watched in despair as her son John began abusing alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine.

In "Tormented Souls," Missie's recollections of these painful events are interwoven with Mark and John's accounts of their trials and eventual recoveries. Their testimonies show us how it is possible for addicts to get clean even after years of using, and how they and their loved ones can finally heal.
