Judy Lohr is a mother, grandmother, and licensed clinical social worker with thirty years of experience in addictions treatment who has worked as a clinical supervisor, marriage and family therapist, adolescent counselor, and individual and group therapist. She lives with her husband, Reggie, and their dog, Baxter in Beaufort, South Carolina, where she still counsels addicts and alcoholics and their families in her private practice. Judy has published her new book “Addicts, Why I Love Them”: a culmination of years of frustration at the institutional and political lethargy exhibited toward the treatment of patients battling addiction in her county.

Addicts know how cunning, baffling, and powerful the disease that they are battling is.

Families are sure they have the answer to their loved one’s problems if only the addict would heed their advice!

Most communities are woefully lacking in treatment programs and facilities that work. Treatment providers are outnumbered by the patients battling addiction, and they struggle with how mental illness muddies up the picture and how little government officials care about those bothersome addicts.

Sometimes it’s not a lack of caring. Sometimes it’s ignorance by officials, medical personnel, and undereducated treatment folks and lack of facilities.

How much would it mean to most folks impacted by this insidious disease to be able to navigate the roadblocks to getting their loved ones the help they need and deserve?

Read on to discover some of the challenges in one community. Could it be your community?

Published by Page Publishing, Judy Lohr’s engrossing book is an eye-opening exposé and cautionary tale for counselors and administrators from a counselor who has dedicated over three decades of her career to working for the alcoholics and addicts of Beaufort County, South Carolina.
