Eric Newhouse - The ManEric Newhouse earned his reputation as a crusading journalist, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for a yearlong series of stories about alcoholism. Through personal, in-depth interviews, he has seen the devastation caused by PTSD from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the ongoing trauma for veterans from Vietnam and other American conflicts. Newhouse's crusade is to get the young men and women who have served their country on the battlefields the help that they need... and deserve.

Faces of RecoveryFaces of Recovery continues the report on how millions of American soldiers have faced the ultimate dilemma: kill the enemy or risk being killed yourself. As documented in Faces of Combat each choice traumatizes the brain. This book also introduces a newly discovered complication, moral injury. It occurs when soldiers are ordered into a conflict they cannot morally justify, yet are forced to kill, when their chain of command has betrayed or abandoned them, and when a warrior has violated his own moral code. Faces of Recovery looks at the personal steps each veteran must take to feel accepted again in society -- forgiveness, making atonement, self-forgiveness, and physical exercise to help the brain reduce depression and anxiety.

Alcohol: Cradle to GraveA reprinting of Eric Newhouse's Pulitizer Prize-winning articles in book format. He's seen what he refers to as the flotsam and jetsam of human life: the divorces, lost jobs, battered wives and children, crime, drunken drivers, car wrecks, and medical bills. And, he's come to the conclusion that alcohol is behind much of it. This book, Alcohol: Cradle to Grave, offers a compelling, day-in-the-life look at how the disease of alcoholism affects Great Falls, Montana in particular and the state of Montana in general.
