We invite you to a LIVE Facebook Chat: Author of “The Los Angeles Diaries” and “This River” Shares Insights on Recovery and Parenting

If addiction has one redeeming value, it’s that it doesn’t discriminate, crossing all ethnic, economic and social barriers,” reveals father and author, James Brown.

Join us for our monthly “Meet the Parents Hour,” a popular, LIVE Facebook Chat and Q&A session taking place this Friday, June 17 at 12 p.m. EDT/ 9 a.m. PDT, featuring James – a father and husband who will share his journey to recovery and attempts to become a better dad.

He is the author of “The Los Angeles Diaries” and “This River,” both memoirs dealing with alcoholism and drug addiction. As the father of three sons, James spent the better part of his life battling his addictions, while struggling to be a responsible, loving parent. He finally achieved sobriety and successfully repaired and renewed his relationships with wife and his children.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to ask James questions and hear from others touched by substance abuse.
