Addiction is a lifelong issue that may never be resolved fully, but personal freedom from the effects of a child with an addiction is possible.

Our Experience Tells Us…

  1. Addiction does not discriminate. Good Parents can have Addict Children.
  2. Addiction does not develop in isolation & neither does recovery. Parents & Families need to be involved in prevention, intervention, and the recovery process.
  3. Children may require adult intervention for proper decision making.
  4. Support services need to be accessible & accommodate the schedules of those in need – the parents.
  5. Marijuana is a Drug and is something to be concerned about.
