Heart-wrenching, raw, and incredibly honest portrait of self-harming and recovery in 'Girl In Pieces'; it was emotionally hard to read but this book is so VERY important
Girl in Pieces - Kathleen Glasgow

I'm going to dare to reveal a bit of myself in this review because it absolutely affected my reading.
I had the early reader’s copy for this brilliant book for a few years before I could bring myself to read all the way through it, and I even started it once and couldn’t continue, shelving it for at least a year or so before picking it up a second time. It was an intense and very difficult read for me because of the subject matter, and I got through it after reading Kathleen Glasgow’s excellent second book ‘How to Make Friends with The Dark’ which was almost as difficult for me to read, and equally amazing. Together, these two books encompass so much of my own experience it’s heartbreakingly uncanny, and I was lucky enough to even let Kathleen know this when I met her at her own book signing here in Seattle recently.

I’ve been that ‘girl in pieces’ like Charlie, like the many young women out there hiding their scars from others, under clothing or bandages, caused by cutting, burning, or whatever ‘needed’ to be done in that painful moment. It was a long and very hard journey for me to heal enough from depression, grief, anxiety, self-harming behavior, and PTSD, to where I felt I could cope with life again. The book is honest and gritty, and since Kathleen knows exactly what this all feels like, she understood what I meant when I said it took me a few years to get around to reading this; in the author’s note, she writes that it took her nine years to get this book onto paper. But she’s here. I’m here.
This book is actually about hope, and that’s honestly why I really want many many young women, girls, to read this.

 

When I read ‘Girl In Pieces’ my journey and all sorts of things came back to me, and yes, this is why the book was so hard to read; it brought up thoughts and feelings I hadn’t had for years. I know that’s what will make it hard for others to read too. The cover is a trigger warning or just a plain trigger itself; I don’t know that anyone seeing that will have any doubt as to what this book is about. While the subjects within are difficult to read about, those who understand them stand to benefit the most.
It takes a boatload of talent to tackle all kinds of really difficult issues: drug abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, parental neglect, grief, suicide, self-harming (and foster kids in her next novel), but Glasgow does a lot in this one book. Some reviews point out that there’s 'too much' in this one book but that’s the point; self-harming is rooted in deep pain borne from many issues, it doesn’t happen out of a vacuum. Many of these issues collide and Glasgow writes about them from her depths of her soul, from her personal experience.

There are a number of different characters in the book (the deeply wounded Charlie, the toxic Riley, counselor Casper, Charlie’s mom, a number of different friends who play varied roles in Charlie’s life along the way), and they’re all memorable and painfully vivid, often uncomfortably so. And Charlie's awkwardness, fear, pain, and bravery can be felt on every page. It's hard and absolutely heart-wrenching to read but it's incredibly worth it.

 

I'll end this by saying that some readers won't 'get' this book at all, others desperately need to read it and will likely have a hard time with it. But this book will reach some people and it will resonate deeply with them. When a book can touch you deep down it can stay with you forever. But scars and memories stay with you forever too, no matter how far in the past, and this story is a reminder of that.
Thank you, Kathleen Glasgow, for writing this book. I wish I'd read this a long time ago, even if I'm not sure I would've been ready. But I'm glad it's out there in this big wide scary world.

Teen Recovery Center | Adolescent Drug Treatment Centers - Kokua Recovery

Kokua Recovery is a teen residential treatment program for boy and girls between the ages of 13-17. Our program has gender-specific treatment in two separate locations in Colorado. At Kokua, we aim to heal the trauma that underlies addiction. We also focus on holistic mental health wellness, in our comfortable home-like setting.

 

Longer Length of Stay for Stronger Success

 

Our philosophy focuses on the science of recovery so that we can have the highest success in treating teens for substance abuse. Research has shown that in 30-90 day recovery programs nearly two-thirds of clients fall back into old patterns and behaviours. However, if the length of stay is 6 months or greater, coupled with supportive aftercare, the outcomes are improved substantially.

 

Finding Meaningful Replacement Behaviors and Connection

 

At Kokua Recovery, we use outdoor recreation activities and adventure therapy to help teens replace addictive behaviours with healthy interests and connection. This facilitates developing lifelong hobbies, physical outlets, and the ability to connect to others. It helps our teens live healthier, happier lives. The end goal is to create healing that equips teens for lasting recovery.

 

Meaningful Service for Internal Development

 

We are called Kokua meaning “extending loving help to others” and we embody the value of service.  Research has shown that individuals are three times more likely to remain sober after treatment when they are involved in meaningful service. We provide amazing opportunities for our clients, including trips to orphanages in Guatemala. In this role as caretakers of younger children in an orphanage, among other service opportunities, clients become more aware of their self-focused thoughts and efforts and are able to direct them toward others and find gratitude and purpose in their sobriety.

 

Family Support for Lasting Change

 

Family involvement is essential in the treatment of teens. We have dedicated family therapists that have weekly family contact, monthly educational material for parents, and onsite parent workshops to help support and positively change the entire family system.

Our sprawling 10 acres campus by the beach offers physical, mental and spiritual healing from drug and alcohol abuse. Patients are treated with complete natural and holistic treatment plans developed by our experienced team of doctors, counsellors and therapists.

The rehab centershould be well known for its treatment plans and rate of recovery. Do a little research online and you can pick the best Los Angeles Luxury Rehab, ranked as Number 1 by Healthcare Global.

The luxury rehab should have pristine surroundings and a great environment. Luxury Rehab is preferred by most of the patients because of its location and amenities. A serene environment in the rehab allows the patients to relax and rejuvenate, while undergoing the treatment.

The treatment plans provided by the luxury rehab should provide holistic treatment plans using the modern solutions. The JCAHO accreditation helps to determine the world class service provided at the resort.

The Luxury Rehab should offer natural and organic healing plans. Most of the rehab centers offer alternative prescription medicines to treat the patients of addiction.

Acupuncture for the Treatment of Opiate Addiction

Only the best services and treatments are provided by California Top Rehab to its global clientele. There is no question about the fact that traditional rehabilitation facilities cannot provide the customized treatment that California Top Rehab offers to people who are suffering from drug or alcohol dependency. Most traditional rehabs are dependent on government support that is why they cannot afford the same amenities that are provided by luxury rehabs.

California Top Rehab is well known for providing alternative treatment methods to their patients. When rehabilitation centers apply the cookie-cutter treatment they often fail to help the patient because it fails to address the underlying reasons behind the addiction. People have unique personalities meaning that a custom designed treatment must be provided to gain the most effective results.

Acupuncture is one of the holistic modalities that California Top Rehab uses in the treatment of opiate addiction. Acupuncture has been practiced by the Chinese centuries ago for various clinical conditions. Thin solid needles are inserted into specific parts of the body to treat different disorders. This alternative treatment method is now being widely practiced not only in China but Western countries as a complementary therapeutic intervention.

There are 3 known advantages on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction. When acupuncture is used on a patient, who is dependent on opiates, there are no known side effects that will increase the sufferings while on the road to recovery. Second, opiate relapse can be prevented through the use of acupuncture. Third, acupuncture can be use for pregnant and parturient women.

Based on the observations of Dr. Wen in Hong Kong, when acupuncture is combined with electrical stimulation at 4 body points and 2 ear points, the symptoms of opiate withdrawal are relieved. When self sticking electrodes are placed over the skin on the acupoints followed by electrical stimulation, it can prevent relapse of heroin use and ameliorate opiate withdrawal signs.

More recent studies have revealed that acupuncture helps reduce the effects of positive and negative reinforcement associated to opiate addiction. However, future researches will better determine the extent of the influence of acupuncture therapy in regulating dopamine and other neurotransmitters.
