My Friend Has a Child Who is Struggling with Addiction. How Can I Help?
You don’t have to be affected by drug addiction to support a friend whose kid is struggling, or have to know exactly what to say. You just have to be there.
This Father’s Day, we celebrate the stories of dads. (Just as we did with stories of moms on Mother’s Day.)
Hear from a daughter thanking her father for never giving up on her. And from a dad who “feels like the luckiest person on the planet” because of his daughter’s recovery – and his own. Read the reflections of a father of two who is a doctor in recovery from prescription pills. And from a dad who, after “ten years in hell” with his son, has come to understand that addiction is a family disease.
When a family is struggling with addiction, it can often feel like everything is falling apart. We’re incredibly proud of the fathers who stood by their children and families with compassion and support. And for their willingness to share their stories and offer hope to others.
