    I think it is a gross mistake to take a true saenemttt, mothers are more ready to see addiction as a disease that needs treatment and then let that lead to conclusion that therefore, continue to focus energy on communicating to mothers. I am an educated woman, who also thought my son's addiction was treatable, but my husband's ignorance, and control of the purse strings of our family, kept my son from getting help, kept our family in conflict, and eventually drove the entire family over a cliff. You cannot skip the dad, SORRY, but ignorant or not, he is 1/2 of the equation to getting early and decent treatment.
