About the book

In our community and nation we have an epidemic on our hands. There’s a unique drug on the street now that’s destroying families at a rate like no other drug has ever done before.  Meth (ice) not only binds a person up in addiction, but it changes them. The way they speak, the way they act and the way they treat those around them.


Peter Lyndon-James helps people break free from life controlling issues, such as meth and other drugs, bringing them to the point where they want to change and make the decision to turn their life around so badly, that they will finally stop taking drugs.


“Tough Love” is designed to equip you and your family with ways in which you will successfully handle a person on drugs. While primarily focused on meth, the principles on in “Tough Love” apply across the board for all forms of addiction, helping you learn what to do and how to handle the challenge ahead.

About the Author

Peter ’s vision is to bring holistic recovery to the lives of men, providing a long-term safe community for men pursuing a life free from addiction. Peter established the first Shalom House in the Swan Valley in 2012. He drew inspiration from his own life experience, recovering from a broken family and associated trauma.  


 A ward of the State from age nine, Peter grew up in foster homes, children’s homes and institutions, spending most of his childhood being locked up or living on the streets. Growing up in a dysfunctional family unit, he felt unwanted, unloved and abandoned.  At the age of 9 he was given a choice – “live with your Dad”, who Peter felt abandoned him, or ”go to Longmore children’s home ”. Because of the hurt he experienced he made the choice and went to lock up. This was Peter ’s first taste of a life behind bars. He became a ward of the S tate.

Tough Love Seminar

The author of “Tough Love: Tackling addiction and seeing change”, Peter Lyndon-James, is an itinerant speaker and can be booked in for a Tough Love Seminar.

In our country and throughout the rest of the world we have an epidemic on our hands. Ice has taken over the minds, hearts and homes of people from all walks of life. The Tough Love Seminar is designed to equip families and individuals with the right ways in which they can help their loved ones beat addiction. Sadly, many families think they are doing the right thing, but in the actual fact they are doing the wrong thing. By the time they realise, it is too hard to turn back – the ripple effect has spread through the whole family and taken everyone out in the process.

The Tough Love Seminar brings home many hard truths and opens the eyes of families to show them the right way of helping the ones they love.

Peter’s Story

Australia is suffering the worst drug epidemic in it’s history, with users and addicts causing massive damage to themselves, their families and the community.


At the height of his criminal career, he was dealing guns, using prostitutes, committing burglary and selling up to 2.5kg of methamphetamine a day.  Under regular surveillance by the police, Peter lived in a state of paranoia, dragging his family from one Australian city to another in an effort to stay out of jail.


Unlike most stories that begin this way, Peter’s life underwent miraculous change – freeing him from the prison of addiction and fear and leading him to become the founder and CEO of Australia’s toughest and most successful rehab.


Peter is passionate and committed to helping others trapped in addiction, and restoring the lives of men and families through his seminars and as CEO of Shalom House.
