Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Fifteen-year-old Hannah was a privileged young girl with a promising future, but that didn't stop her from sliding into an abyss of sex, drugs, alcohol, and other high-risk behaviors. Off the Rails narrates Hannah's sudden decline and subsequent treatment through the raw, honest, compelling voices of Hannah and her shocked and desperate mother--each one telling her side of the story./Fearing that they couldn't keep their teen safe, Hannah's parents made the agonizing decision to send her to a wilderness program, and then to residential treatment. Off the Rails tells the story of the two tough years Hannah spent in three separate programs--and ponders the factors that contributed to her ultimate recovery./Written for parents of teens experimenting with high-risk behaviors, as well as those trying to navigate the controversial world of teen treatment programs, Off the Rails is an inspiring story of family love, determination, and the last-resort intervention that helped one troubled young woman find sobriety after a terrifying and harrowing journey."-- Back cover
