From rock bottom to recovery—the son of veteran
broadcaster Bill Moyers chronicles his life- shattering
battle with addiction and the hard-won fight for
William Cope Moyers has come a long,
long way. In 1994, he lay on the floor of an Atlanta crack
house. His father had put together a search party. His
worried family waited at home where Moyers had left them
when he embarked on yet another binge. From that lowly,
drug-hazed night, Moyers went on to become an executive at
the Hazelden Foundation and travels far and wide to talk
about addiction and treatment.
Broken tells the
story of what happened between then and now—from growing up
the privileged son of Bill Moyers to his descent into
alcoholism and drug addiction, his numerous stabs at getting
clean, his many relapses, and how he managed to survive.
Harrowing and wrenching, Broken paints a picture of a
man with every advantage who nonetheless found himself
spiraling into a dark and life-threatening abyss. But unlike
other memoirs of its kind, Broken emerges into the
clear light of Moyers’s recovery as he dedicates his life to
changing the politics of addiction. Beautifully written with
a deep underlying spirituality, this is a missive of hope
for the scores of Americans struggling with addiction—and an
honest and inspiring account that proves the spiritual
insight that we are strongest at the broken places.
