A father's story: Addiction is unpredictable. There is no consistent timeline for recovery; it takes what it takes and every addict or alcoholic is different. Scott's story is a real life, personal example of what addiction looked like in his family.
This story is such a powerful sign of hope for families struggling with addicted sons or daughters, and helps portray what the road to recovery may look like.
Addiction is a chronic relapsing disease. This means that recovery is a fluctuating road. In Scott's story, his ability to not give up on his son makes all the difference and it's important for other parents to understand that.
Active addicts and alcoholics are sick people trying to get well. They need your love and support, and Scott's story exemplifies that beautifully.
