Rising Above Opioid Addiction: An Indigenous Woman's Story of Childhood Trauma, Faith & Healing
Paperback - English

⚠ Someone you love might be only one high away from dying of an overdose. ⚠
That was Siera's story.

For two decades, she lived a daily battle. Would she press on in her pursuit of the pinnacle of success...or surrender to the constant temptation to self-destruct?

This riveting memoir recounts the journey of an indigenous girl from an impoverished reservation in the American Southwest... all the way to Harvard and U.C. Berkeley Law School. Along the way, the demons from her violent, dysfunctional childhood continue to haunt her steps, dragging her again and again into the depths of addiction and destructive relationships.

Can she overcome the stigma of opioid addiction to fulfill her commitment to lead her tribe forward, discovering faith, hope and love along the way?

In this unforgettable, gut-wrenchingly honest book, Siera shares the difficult choices she made, the price she paid and the reason she continues to believe.

What Makes This Book Different?

Recent memoir best sellers also deal with:

  • Childhood trauma recovery
  • PTSD
  • The opioid epidemic
  • The life-changing power of a 12 step program.

What sets apart Rising Above Opioid Addiction, written by an indigenous author, is the unique glimpse into modern tribal culture.

Unlike some Native American books, memoirs and biographies, the author makes no excuses for the shocking fact that American Indian and Alaska Native children have the highest rate of childhood victimization. She exposes the little-told secret that indigenous women experience higher levels of violence than other women; and in fact, 84% will be a victim of violence in their lifetime.

♥ If your heart is touched by addiction memoirs that offer hope, then this book is for you. Written from a place of deep faith in God, the author finds help from a higher power in her journey to childhood trauma healing and recovery. ♥
