Told both from Carren's perspective as a former meth addict and from her father's perspective, Loss of Innocence is one family's opportunity to prove that there is life after drug addiction. The Clems were a perfectly normal, middle class American family--then 15-year-old Carren became addicted to meth. Her habit shattered the family's world. Within two months of first taking the highly addictive drug, Carren's life had spiralled out of control--she had moved out of her home, spent her entire savings, and resorted to stealing, dealing, and prostitution to fund her addiction. Frantic with worry, her father Ron returned to his old job as a police officer in a desperate effort to rescue his daughter, and almost died in the process. Told with compelling candor and dignity from both Carren's and Ron's perspective, this brutally honest account is poignant proof of a father's love and the real possibility of a life after drugs.
