My Child & Addiction - A Parent-to-Parent Podcast, was conceived and developed by three fathers whose children are addicts. Joined by several other parent support group participants, their hope is that by sharing their stories other parents and family members are offered a little encouragement and heartfelt support as we all travel this most challenging journey together. You are not alone.
During this Parent Support Group meeting, the topic is how downright tough it can be to parent a child with substance use disorder and other mental health challenges, and the remarkable perspective to be gained when there is improvement or recovery. The parents are joined in this meeting by Brad Sorte, Chief Growth Officer and Executive Vice President, Caron Treatment Centers.
