Tuesday, June 27 – Where Love and Addiction Meet
We may often feel fragile, but we are strong. And we are many. As parents, we have the power to overpower the destruction that addiction spreads. The power to trade shame and blame for strength. Sandy offers help and hope for parents living in the place where love and addiction meet—a place where help enables and hope hurts. For parents trying to figure out the difference between helping their child to live and helping their child to die. For parents grieving the loss of a child who is still alive. For parents needing to find a recovery of their own.
