Book Review: “The Weight of Air: A Story of the Lies about Addiction and the Truth about Recovery,” by David Poses

I just found out this author is deceased – he passed away earlier this year. Out of respect for his family, I deleted my original post reviewing the book.

The conclusion of my review was that I hoped he could write a follow up book on his life in recovery on buprenorphine. It saddens me that he passed away before he could do more writing.

My condolences to his family and friends.

    My son was prescribed Methadone at a treatment center after continued severe depression during detox. His counselor told me it was very unusual, but she had exhausted her other tools. He was on it for 5 years, and under the care of a new doctor decided to switch to Subutex because of the cost of Methadone. He has continued to work a full time job and be a responsible citizen from his first day. He is 55 now, and had been in and out of recovery (mostly out) for 30 years.
