About the Author
Tonier 'Neen' Cain, is a force of nature. For two decades she hustled on the streets desperately feeding an insatiable crack addiction and racking up 83 arrests along the way. In 2004, pregnant and incarcerated for violation of parole, she was provided the opportunity to go to a community trauma, mental health and addictions program. Feeling safe for the first time in her life, Neen confronted her haunting childhood memories: filth and chronic hunger, sexual assaults by neighborhood men, routine physical and mental abuse --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

COULDN'T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN . . .Reviewed in the United States on 5 March 2015
An amazing book by an amazing determined young woman. My introduction to Tonier Cain came when I began to get more informed about Trauma Focused treatment in my role as a Social Work educator. I saw the visual documentary of her life that goes by the same name as the book, "Healing Neen." I was amazed at her resilience and all that she had done to overcome her adversity in such a short period of time when after 19 years, someone finally asked the question, "What happened to you?" That documentary taught me more about trauma and its effects on an individual than all of the other lectures that I had attended on the subject and the research that I had read. I was determined to read Ms. Cain's book to get even more of an insight into her life and the importance of focusing on the trauma of an individual. The book did not disappoint. I literally could not put it down and read it in record time, not because I'm a fast reader, but because of the fact that it was so captivating. I highly recommend it.

Great Book for Understanding Trauma and AddictionReviewed in the United States on 20 December 2019
As a therapist I find it important to read survivors' works to get deeper into the different levels of trauma and how individuals experience trauma. This book shows addiction, several systems and how their involvement both helped and hurt, as well as the individual and how she survived complex trauma. It was an incredible read and I highly recommend it.
I strongly recommend this book to those who have struggled with abuseReviewed in the United States on 14 December 2016
I have two foster kids. This is a story of hope in spite of her almost 4 decade struggle. I strongly recommend this book to those who have struggled with abuse, addiction, who want to foster children or adopt. Great great great book!

A book well worth your timeReviewed in the United States on 21 August 2020
This book is awesome! I was privileged hear Ms. Cain at a HIV/STD conference in Austin,Texas a couple of years ago. She is a dynamic speaker and tells her story straight from the heart and captivates you from the minute she begins her testimony. I purchased her book on my iPad and sorta forgot that it was there. Once locating it, it was addictive and I could hardly put it down. To God be the Glory for the good things he does. Thank you so much Tonia for sharing the good and the bad.
