Cherri Raws Freeman has written a painfully honest assessment of the devastation addiction unleashes on families. With drug and alcohol dependencies on the rise, Set Free is a must-read for every parent and grandparent whose descendants are dealing with addiction. The real-life stories, spiritual insights, and practical helps are priceless. It's also a book for those who think their kids have sidestepped the ravages of chemical enslavement, because God only knows what they still might face.

Having been personally impacted by addiction 30 years ago and serving in addiction recovery, I have read dozens of books on addiction, and attended many classes and seminars. While some were very helpful, Cherri Freeman's new book, "Set Free" is a true gem for anyone seeking a deeper biblical understanding of addiction, it's causes, effects on loved ones, and most importantly, what each individual can do to walk in freedom from the slavery to addiction or how to understand what you can do, if someone you love is an addict. For anyone like me, who was caught blindsided in the midst of addiction, this book will not only help you understand addiction, but will help you to move from insanity to being able to live each day wholly dependent on the only One who can help you to live with joy, strength and peace, Jesus Christ. A book that will be underlined and highlighted and referred to again and again. A must read.

Cherri Raws Freeman's book, Set Free: Finding Truth and Hope When a Loved One is Addicted, injects light into a dark subject. There is, as the book makes clear, a silent epidemic of addiction happening all around us that we tend to ignore until we can't. When someone we love finds themselves in the grips of addiction, this is the book we'll need. It is honest and passionate. Written from places of personal hurt and healing, Freeman reveals the harsh truth and realities of addiction. But at the same time, the book is thoughtful and offers help. Its primary goal, after all, is to set people free in the hope and power of the gospel. I suspect this book will be a lifeline for many.

Cherri's heritage of Americas Keswick, her family heartaches, and her personal testimony give her a passion to help those struggling with addiction and their families. Her decade of recovery ministry and her research and writing skills contribute to make this volume a unique and reliable resource. It will be required reading for our recovery coach training.
