Roy attends meetings weekly and is often asked to be the guest speaker at many rehabs, hospitals, jails, and recovery institutions. His story is one of a kind, but he will take you through the ups and downs of addiction and recovery that most can relate to. Roy’s story gives people hope that lives can be changed.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Roy DeMauro’s poignant autobiographical tale is both touching and insightful. He reminds readers that no matter how unmanageable life becomes, that there is always hope for them to make things change.

In talking about the book, DeMauro states “‘True Blue Friend’ is my disease. My ‘True Blue Friend’ showed me a good time, took me to a lot of great places, gave me the strength I needed to communicate with people without fear. But did he? No, my ‘True Blue Friend’ lied to me. Had me believing I couldn’t do anything without him. It was so hard to escape from his grasp, but once I did, I realized he wasn’t my friend, he was my greatest enemy. His goal was to see me suffer and die. My goal is to not let him succeed. My higher power pulled me from the gates of hell to show me a new way of life and has never left my side. My higher power gave me the strength to tell my story to help other people. My story is honest, sad, real life events with no desire to go back to what I was. It also tells the joys and happiness I have been blessed with. The high I was chasing all those years with the help of my ‘True Blue Friend’, I found without him right here in recovery helping others.”

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “True Blue Friend” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
