“This is a rare, detailed, and totally absorbing look into substance use disorder and the people who are impacted by it. These are two subjects I thought I knew far too well, having lost my youngest son to a heroin overdose on January 1, 2015. As I read, I began to realize that I still have much to learn. This powerful, insightful, must-read book causes me to want to hear more." -- JUSTICE (ret.) JESS DICKINSON

Curious is the story of Christina Dent's learning journey after a life-changing experience with the mother of her foster son sparks curiosity about the best way to reduce harm from drugs. With addiction touching many families and potent drugs available almost everywhere, better solutions are needed. Curious offers one.

Christina was born, raised, and homeschooled in a conservative Christian home in Mississippi. The proverbial good girl, she stayed away from drugs and earned a degree in Bible before leading ministries at her church. She's the last person you might think would give a TEDx Talk and found a thriving nonprofit inviting people to consider seismic shifts in how cultures worldwide approach drugs and addiction.

Curious tells her story along with the people and research that cross her path, giving her a vision for unexpected solutions that save lives, heal families, and promote public safety. But Curious isn't just a story. It's an invitation to readers to get curious alongside Christina and consider for themselves whether the shift she comes to believe in could be the best way to reduce harm from drugs so all of us have a better opportunity to thrive.

Christina Dent is the Founder & President of End It For Good, a Mississippi-based nonprofit advocating approaches to drugs that prioritize life, preserve families, and promote public safety. Christina was born and raised in Jackson, graduated from Belhaven University, and worked for a technology start-up before her experience as a foster parent sparked her curiosity about how we approach drugs and addiction as a society. What she learned changed her mind about the best ways to reduce drug-related harm, and in 2019 she gave a TEDx Talk and launched End It For Good to invite others to consider shifting from a criminal justice approach to drugs to a health-centered one. She lives with her husband and three sons in Ridgeland.
