Charles F. Burton holds a Master of Arts in addictive disease counseling. His 35 years of counseling experience include his position as executive director of a 150- bed rehabilitation center and personal mentoring of recovering addicts and alcoholics. Burton’s own struggle with alcoholism until age thirty supplied painful clarity of how addictions negatively affect families.
Burton is co-founder of Overcomers Recovery Support, an addictions recovery program for adults. With his wife, Sharon, he authored the 90-day recovery workbook, A Daily Choice, Overcoming Life-controlling Problems, a personal study curriculum for adults in recovery. www.RecoverySupport.org
Years of front-line experience with alcoholics, addicts, and their families led Burton to the conclusion that the best way to combat addiction is to imprint children’s minds with the dangers of addictive substances during their formative years. His new book Not Me, It’s a Trap! is an exceptional presentation of colorful images and characters that will give young readers a clear advantage to respond appropriately when they are tempted to experiment with drugs.
