How far would you go to save your daughter?
The Clems were a perfectly normal, middle class American family. Then fifteen-year-old Carren became addicted to Meth. Her habit shattered the family's world. Her father almost lost his life in trying to save hers.
Within two months of first taking the highly addictive drug Meth, Carren's life had spiralled out of control - she had moved out of home, spent her entire savings and resorted to stealing, dealing and prostitution to fund her addiction. Frantic with worry, her father Ron returned to his old job as a police officer in a desperate effort to rescue his daughter, and almost died in the process.
Told with compelling candour and dignity from both Carren's and Ron's perspective, this brutally honest account is poignant proof of a father's love and the real possibility of a life after drugs.
Ron Clem is a retired Los Angeles police officer and the president of non-profit organisation Teens in Crisis. He is a court recognised methamphetamine expert. His daughter, Carren, is now healthy and sober. She works in Yellowstone National Park.show more
