Withdrawing from ‘Withdrawal’: The Language of Addiction Matters
We need to change language like junkie, addict, and alcoholic if we are to lessen the stigma and negativity that saturates the perception of drug addiction.
This Mother’s Day we’re taking a moment to celebrate the power of stories. From lighthearted to loss and lots of places in between, we’re incredibly grateful for these nine mothers who are brave enough to share their journey with us.
Motherhood is not easy on a good day, but when a family is dealing with addiction, it can all seem unbearable. Hats off to these moms, and to all of you, for your support of one another in good times and bad, for lifting each other up, again and again, and for helping us all feel more connected and hopeful.
Wishing you and your families a happy, healthy Mother’s Day.
