  • I wanted to get the message out that any addict could get clean, stop using drugs and find a new way to live.

    My personal life experience can be a living example to help educate the public that addiction is a humanistic

    disease from which the addict and family members suffer no matter what supportive opportunities are given. The

    disease of addiction is completely profound in the aspect that help can only be obtained through a miraculous

    process of Recovery otherwise known as Grace. I share about the horrors of my life and how wonderful my

    life has become today. In the spirit of recovery my contribution is exemplified by the selfless effort of helping

    other addicts find and achieve recovery. Today my goal is to help others unconditionally and to be a part of the

    solution rather than the problem. My understanding is my contribution will help alleviate the pain and suffering

    of addicts and those close to addicts by being exposed to this work of art. My motive was to bring to light the

    love and truth about the feelings of an addict who has found joy, happiness and freedom. This is the recovery

    revolution that is going on right now.

  • A Stunning Memoir about Recovery from Addiction
    Author Christopher Keeley offers hope for drug addicts to get clean, to start over, and have a wonderful life
    Washington, DC. 02.08.2007, Addiction to drugs is like a lover that you crave for, the more you
    give in to it, the harder it is to let go. This unhealthy obsession can cause horrible
    consequences, not only to yourself, but also to your family and the people you care about. Author and
    award winning photographer Christopher Keeley shares how he quit this nasty habit through Paradise
    Life, a profound collection of personal stories and photographs that inspire a spirit of recovery.

    Paradise Life is the author's personal memoir of an addict overcoming addiction and the miracle of
    recovery. Keeley's photographs deal with the many facets of obsession and speak to the internal search
    many individuals undergo during the lifelong quest for meaning and selfawareness. Drawing on his own
    inner obsessive quest for knowledge as inspiration, Keeley captures pain, longing, torment, despair,
    hope, and love within the faces and forms of his images. His pictures are unsympathetic and
    communicate the inner emotional trauma of the homeless, the addicted and the lonely as well as the
    strength of human bonding experienced by addicts in recovery. By revealing the essence of his
    subjects, the works magnify with often unsettling clarity the pain of discovery, joy of friendships
    born of pain, or the turmoil of new journeys that resound within each person. Through these poignant
    images, Keeley challenges the viewer to look within one's own heart to question, affirm, accept, or
    reject, leaving one with valuable insights into our own places in humanity.

    Keeley declares that any addict can get clean, stop using drugs, and find a new way to live, offering
    his personal experience as a living example. He aims to help educate the public that addiction is a
    humanistic disease from which the addict and family members suffer, no matter what supportive
    opportunities are provided. The disease of addiction is completely profound in the aspect that help
    can only be obtained through a miraculous process of Recovery otherwise known as Grace. As he shares
    the horrors of his life and how wonderful it has become today, he hopes to help alleviate the pain and
    suffering of addicts and those close to addicts by being exposed to his work of art. Paradise Life
    will bring to light the love and truth about the feelings of an addict who has found joy, happiness
    and freedom.

    This memoir is an excellent resource for all Professional Healers or Health Care Providers. Health
    Professionals, Educators and Health Services Administrators would benefit from Paradise Life.
    Advocates, Addiction Therapists and Mentors would also benefit from Paradise Life. A must read for any
    human being who cares about other human beings.
