Luke Wiltshire

Author and Addictions Case Worker

Confronted with life's brutal trials—childhood trauma, addiction, violence, loss, and survival on the streets—Luke’s soul refused to be overshadowed by past darkness. Enduring kidnapping, torture, and the battle against substance dependence, his path was one few could tread without faltering. Yet, from despair, a profound transformation was ignited. Through relentless perseverance, recovery, and education, he forged a new purpose in service to others.

In the wake of the opioid crisis, this compilation book delves into the profound trauma that leads to addiction and the further anguish inflicted by its grasp, while also shedding light on the stigma that surrounds it. Through a collection of powerful narratives, this book explores the devastating impact of addiction on individuals, families, and communities, offering a beacon of hope for recovery and healing.

Against the backdrop of societal stigma and misunderstanding, readers are invited to witness the resilience of the human spirit as individuals navigate the complexities of addiction and its aftermath. From the depths of despair to the heights of redemption, these stories illuminate the transformative journey of recovery.

Healing Mind, Body, & Soul: Recovering from the Trauma of Addiction provides a sacred space for healing to unfold, fostering connection, empathy, and understanding among those affected by addiction. By confronting the stigma and silence surrounding all addictions, this book aims to inspire readers to cultivate compassion, resilience, and a renewed sense of purpose in their own lives. Together, we can break the chains of stigma, transform pain into power, and embark on a journey of healing for the mind, body, and soul.
