Parents must please intervene and help their addict children

I've read a couple of heartbreaking stories about families with addicts in the home here now, so I thought I would share some information about help for parents with addicted children, with your permission?

I know how hard it is for a parent to know that a child has become an addict. It's scary and overwhelming, and it doesn't help that the child or young adult also feels miserable and therefore reacts to others (especially family)in a miserable way. Most of the time the home of an addict is a maze of conflict with many screaming matches and hurtful words. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

I did a course called Parent CRAFT (cadenceonline.com) which really helped me a lot with the addict teens that I deal with in my job. It's a science-based, online video-interactive course which was specifically designed to help parents help their addicted children. It's informative, and it teaches parents skills that will help them feel more in control of their own fears, more informed and also equipped to help their child. It focuses on communication a lot, for example.

The site doesn't only offer the course, though, it also offers a lot of other useful information for these parents.

I hope this helps a bit.
