Our Shared Experience Of Watching Our Kids Struggle with Mental Health and Addiction, and then Finding Recovery. 

Those of us who have watched our kids struggle with mental health and addiction issues know just how awful this can be.  Helplessly watching our kids in pain as they spiral downward can be life’s ultimate challenge and in some cases life’s ultimate tragedy.  At first, we think they are just making bad decisions. We justify this by believing that as adolescents, we expect some of this. We naively assume they will grow out of “it” and one day mature.  Signs that things might be worse than we hope include a few semesters of unusually poor grades, unexplainable and suspicious behavior, a substantial change in their friend group or months of them suddenly telling us how much they hate us.   After months of watching them go downhill, arguing with them and spending hours with close family and friends fruitlessly trying to come up with a solution for our newly diagnosed “difficult child”, we call their school counselor or a local therapist and ask for guidance.  If we are fortunate enough to get our kids to actually go see the school counselor or the local therapist (many are not!), once diagnosed with a mental health or addiction diagnosis, we are then faced with questions and thoughts ranging from, “give them more time, things will be fine..”, or  “How did this happen to MY CHILD when they had a fairy tale childhood”, or, “Now what do we do?”, or “What did I do wrong and how can I fix this since I am the parent, and nobody knows my child like I do?” READ MORE
