The Addict is the powerful and revealing narrative of Dr. Michael Stein's year-long treatment of a young woman addicted to Vicodin. Dr. Stein has followed up his award winning book The Lonely Patient with "a useful, sensible, and often inspiring guide to how the medical profession does—and should—treat the sick, and the sick at heart."
