Parents of Addicts... This is why your friends are terrible at supporting you!

Updated: Jul 28, 2019

We get it, addiction isn't an easy topic to talk about, especially for parents of addicts and alcoholics.

Addiction often carries a stigma because of the behaviors that come from a loved one that's addicted to drugs/alcohol. It's important to know that addiction is not a moral failing because of parenting choices. Some of the greatest parents I've ever met have sat right here in our office and had a child addicted to alcohol/drugs.

Addiction is a disease, and it should be treated as one. Recovery from any disease requires love and support. Parents of addicts need support too, but often don't find it in their friends. It's such an uncomfortable topic on every side and often leads to parents feeling very judged and isolated.

In this video, addiction specialist Amber Hollingsworth and Campbell Manning discuss who to talk with about your kid's substance use disorder, when to say something, and what to tell.
