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.
We chatted with Mary Ann, one of our Helpline Chat Specialists, to find out a little more about her background, why she’s passionate about helping parents struggling with their child’s substance use and what she hopes parents will get out of chat.
Have a question, suspicion or concern about your child’s drinking or substance use? Chat with Mary Ann or another specialist Monday-Friday, 5 pm – 10 pm ET and Saturday & Sunday, 12 pm – 5 pm ET.
