It is not enough to put your child into rehab; you have to look after yourself. The damage that is caused, the distrust between family members, not to mention the loss of communication skills and coping mechanisms, are all a result of one person’s addiction. We were at our end and would not have survived as a couple had we not gone to Heart of the Family with Jodi and Debbi. They helped us to understand what had been happening with our child and between us. They taught us how to deal with the addiction and its effect on our lives as individuals, as a couple and as a family. We know that without the support, and the other parents in the group, we would not have made it and we would have continued to blame each other for our daughter’s addiction. We have learned that we did not cause it, we cannot cure it, and we cannot control it, but we can face it together. Jodi and Debbi have brought a calming peace into our lives which has made this unfortunate and unexpected journey livable.
