Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs and Recovery

by Stephen J. Della Valle


Stephen’s life as an addict was a nightmare, bringing him to some of darkest and loneliest places imaginable.

After his introduction to drugs and alcohol at an early age, his life became a series of desperate, morbidly comical attempts to support his addictions -- including botched robberies, corporate embezzlement and prison time.

Twenty years later, Stephen finally reached rock bottom and entered a recovery program —though it took losing his job, his family and himself to get him there. Once clean, he was faced with a new challenge: rebuilding his entire life from scratch, with nothing but faith to go on.

A testament to the power of twelve-step recovery, Rising Above the Influence is Stephen’s honest, inspiring account of the depths one man can fall to—and the heights he can achieve if only he reaches out a hand for help.
