“Zelbovitz” is a book that was written by David M. Zelbovitz, a former addict and resident of Lakeland Florida who struggled for twenty-two years with substance use disorder. He now serves as a peer counselor at Recovery Ranch, a life coach, and a substitute teacher. In his book, he speaks of his battle with addiction and the damage it has done to his family, friends, and career. The recovery village he resides in offers individualized, personalized services to its clients. These include but are not limited to, intensive one on one therapy, group therapy, nutrition counseling, and drug rehabilitation programs. All of these are designed around helping each individual to achieve complete sobriety.
In his book, he offers hope through several stories that depict the various stages of his addiction and the way he eventually discovered sobriety. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, while others offer a ray of hope. This coupled with the personal testimonials and resource pages makes for a very motivating read. For anyone struggling with substance abuse, especially those with a severe addiction such as crack cocaine, or any other severely impairing substance, this book should be highly recommended.
As a former addict myself, I found this to be an eye opening and even inspirational, read. There are some drug treatment centers in Florida that specialize in treating substance abuse, and if you have not checked out, I urge you to do so. David M. Zelbovitz is a great resource for anyone considering going to a drug rehab center in Florida. I highly recommend his book to anyone who needs help.
