#Grateful

Each podcast gets better and better, especially “you are not alone” I never imagined that listening to these again and again and again, would bring the calm in my life. Thank you all the parents who speak and the Caron therapists who have joined the recordings. Please continue with more.

A True Gift For Parents

I am so grateful for this podcast. I found it in my darkest of days when my child was in treatment. I cherish each episode and find comfort, solace, hope and aid in each episode. My boy has been sober for 31 months. I recommend this to everyone that calls me. (Because when your world blows up chances are your whole community knows) keep it up! Thank You!

Saves Me and My Sanity

The podcast is tremendously helpful. I am so grateful for it and hope Caron continues to publish it. Parenting an addict/alcoholic is a challenging proposition, and this podcast helps a lot.
