Anyone who loves somebody suffering from addiction should pick up Mitchum and Denofio's 2022 biography, Addicted to Hope: a chronicle of Michelle Mulledy's life as the wife of an addict.
  • A journey into self-discovery and self-confidence, Michelle's story gives real hope to families supporting loved ones battling addiction. Watching her husband build a million-dollar business and then sink to the depths of living homeless on the streets of Boston, Michelle finds herself and her faith.While supporting her loved one through recovery and coping with his relapses, Michelle learns the importance of caring for oneself.Often in unexpected and wondrous ways, Michelle leaves behind the isolation of addiction to experience the warmth of community embracing her.


So glad to see this book come to print. As a Pastor with Victory Christian Church, heading up the jail ministry. I have known Michelle and John for 10 years. This book will touch many lives. I witnessed this 1st hand, when Michelle told her side of their story of raising her children while her husband was incarcerated. There wasn't a dry eye in the house, at Albany County Jail, including mine.─Pastor Marty Stanton
