"Substance abuse is a wretched disease and knowing 35% of those who are hearing impaired are substance abusers, we can no longer turn our backs on this population. Dr. Lala's book, needed and long overdue in our fields, offers vital groundbreaking material. In its thoroughness it is empowering to our professional fields of mental health, addiction, and disabilities."
