This guide was written by the parent of an addict, who hoped that as a by-product, the exercise would prove to be cathartic.
Its primary purpose however, is to help other parents who are faced with the pain and anguish of this all too common problem.
I fully realise that every case of addiction is different, but without doubt, common patterns frequently emerge.
Every parent wants to proactively help their child recover from this condition, but often find it difficult to find clear advice as to how they can help. This publication is intended to act as a sort of road map which will help them to navigate some of the problems they may encounter.
If knew then what I know now, I am convinced that my son’s recovery would have begun much sooner, and would have probably been more successful. I freely admit to my long lasting ignorance of addiction, and to my slow learning curve that would have better equipped me to be of greater help....
