Are you at the end of your rope? Has your child hit rock bottom, and you no longer know how to help? Do wake up every morning worrying that this will be the day you get the dreaded phone call that your child has overdosed? Do you struggle to balance supporting your child while not enabling their destructive behavior?
Initially, you were shocked. Never in your worst nightmare did you imagine that your baby—your bright three-year-old, your 4th grader who was the star of his soccer team, your high school freshman whose sarcasm and humor made the whole family laugh—would wind up on the streets, unable to hold down a job, or in jail. You constantly ask yourself what you did wrong, if you failed him somehow. Why didn’t you see this earlier, before it spiraled out of control? You blame yourself, but at the same time, you feel powerless to stop the addiction that has taken control of your child’s life.
Most parents of addicts find themselves lost and broken, wanting desperately to help their child but unable to help them resurface. Many parents suffer in silence, paralyzed by the stigma surrounding addiction, as their family falls apart. Other parents try every type of support group, therapy, and rehab, only to see their child relapse.

If you are like most parents of addicts, you may experience periods of hopelessness, after every failed attempt at recovery.
