Smacked : A Harrowing True Story of Addiction and Survival
Smacked is the powerful, uncompromising story of one woman's downward spiral into addiction. Hooked on heroin and crack cocaine, Melinda Ferguson gave up everything she cared about - her children, her marriage, her career - in pursuit of the next fix, the next high. Bold, raw and unashamedly honest, Smacked is a tale of loss and rehabilitation that takes us to the darkest corners of an addict's psyche.
