Join Author Michael S. Oden who provides expert insight into the truth behind drug abuse and addiction LOS ANGELES – Substance abuse and addiction is a nationwide epidemic. Countless numbers of drug and substance abuse campaigns have swept the nation, with little effect. Michael S. Oden MA, DPO II provides his expert insight on the truth behind drug abuse, addiction and human behavior in his new book. “When Nobody’s Home” is the newest work by Oden. Throughout his career, spanning over 15 years, Oden has supervised and interviewed thousands of clients within the criminal justice system. Championing the idea that gaining emotional freedom from addiction is possible, “When Nobody’s Home” is the culmination of Oden’s vast experience. “I was determined to go behind the scenes with my clients and come to understand what specific social/emotional need(s) were being met by consuming drugs day after day and year after year. Otherwise, why would a person choose this type of behavior?” Oden said. Delving into the deeprooted issues of childhood trauma, the absent and/or neglectful father and the direct correlation between the dysfunctional family dynamic and longterm drug dependency, Oden’s book is an eye opening, enthralling read that shines a light on a serious national crisis, and allows individuals to walk away feeling enlightened on why people behave the way they do. Oden’s goal through his work is to enlighten as many individuals who suffer from addiction as he possibly can.
