I help moms of adult addicted loved ones recapture who God created them to be, despite their addicted loved one's choices.
As the mother of a recovering addict, and the guardian of two grandchildren, I've spent years trying to cope with this devastating disease. I used to search for others to help me, but couldn't find what I was looking for.
Now I'm focused on comforting moms, like you, by sharing what I needed -- bringing you hope and a way to recapture you.

    Interview with Author, Mary Dolor, about her book, THROES, a Transformative Parable

    Moms of addicted loved ones need support and tools to help them recover from the family disease of addiction. Author Mary Dolor shares a transformative approach to helping moms heal by sharing a story and asking readers to journal answers to questions. Learn about Neuroplasticity and meta cognition and how they help promote positive thoughts.

    One reader said: I wept as I read about her pain, as it was so easy to relate to the hopelessness and helplessness one feels when dealing with family members suffering this affliction. I believe others will take comfort from her insight knowing they are not alone and can use the techniques she used to heal the deep trauma on themselves and in their families! The message of hope resounds.

Finding Joy

I just listened to your podcast Finding Joy. Thank you so much! I have been struggling with living my life and wanting to spend time with my son. He is in recovery, doing very good. He lives with me and pays rent. He is 21. But when I decide to go out or stay at my boyfriends I feel awful! I feel I have to get up and be home before he wakes up. The question in your podcast....What can I do that once gave me joy? Actually scared me. I struggle with that. I have raised 3 sons and they are my world. I have fun. I go out. But believe I am not living life to the fullest. I am going to journal today and do what you mentioned in your podcast. I will keep you plaster!!!
