Addicted Child? What do you do?

Addicted Child? What do you do?      The Addict’s Mom Podcast (60 min.)

This could be the most important hour
you have ever spent.

Barbara Theodosiou, Founder of The Addict’s Mom explores what to do when you have reached your bottom line with your addicted child
with Joe Herzanek, author of Why Don’t They Just Quit? What Families and Friends Need to Know About Addiction and Recovery.

“You are literally trying to save the person’s life”

~Joe Herzanek


How can you tell when he is maintaining total abstinence? What about when he is no longer living in the house?

What if you cut off financial support and they go out and steal?
Where does a parent get the strength to follow through with this?
What about the fear of following though—the fear of your child living “on the street”?
What if the person has a mental disorder? Does all this still apply?
What if he threatens to kill himself?
How do you know when “Enough is enough”?
What do you do when they show up at the house, after you have told them to leave?
How do you “stick your ground”?
What happens when you’ve tried everything and nothing works?

Barbara TheodosiouThe Addict’s Mom,” founded by Barbara Theodosiou is a group focusing on the mothers of addicted children. The relationship between the mother and addicted child is unique; that does not diminish the experiences of other family members. This group however, is dedicated to addressing the mother’s pain but more importantly, the commonalities of our experiences thus illustrating to the grieving mother that she is not alone nor is she unique in this respect. One line, one thought can help change her perspective for the better. (click here to explore the new Addict’s Mom membership site)
