It was the kind of place where medicine, insurance coverage, and addiction meet to argue. For one disgraced lawyer it is a second chance at life. He had barely survived his alcoholism and now has to survive recovery. Malady Manor is the story of how a cynical, atheist, ex-lawyer makes it through the sense and nonsense of addiction treatment. Desperate for answers, yet highly skeptical that they can be found where he is, he slogs his way through the program, the counselors and the psychobabble. His oasis in the recovery desert is other addicts- people just a screwed up as he is. The story is both his own and the story of every person who has found him or herself facing the ceiling at night from the lumpy mattress of residential drug and alcohol treatment. If you are going there, or have been there, or simply want an evening of fun learning what it is like, Malady Manor is for you.
