9 Stories of 9 Inspiring Dads

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.
