Steamboat nurse releases a book about alcoholism
Christie L. Appel, a nurse at Yampa Valley Medical Associates in Steamboat Springs, recently released a book called “Christian’s Story: Our Family’s Triumph Over Alcohol.” The book is about Appel’s son struggle with alcoholism through interventions, rehab and jail, according to a news release. The Appel family hopes “Christian’s Story” brings faith and encouragement to children who have been affected by alcoholism.
“Addiction has been a generational problem with my family and it became time to draw a line in the sand,” Appel said in the release. “It was a devastating time in all our lives, but we are recovering one day at a time.”
