New non-profit to support parents of addicts

by Cindy

I am a board member of the organization Parents of Drug Addicts (PODA). We offer a support group to address the specific needs of the parents. If you would kindly take a look at our website:

We are just getting started and would appreciate any input you could provide. We are also organizing a conference to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC in February of 2014 and are looking for speakers as well as donations of items to be raffled off to raise money for the organization. As a new not for profit group we are not able to pay, everything for the conference will be volunteer or donated.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Congratulations on starting Parents of Drug Addicts

by: Debbie Wicker

Hello Cindy,

Congratulations for launching a much needed organization Parents of Drug Addicts. I posted your request on our website so that others can contact you if they’d like to get involved.

I tried to visit your website but got a not found error, is your site available now and can you please resend me the url for it:)

My husband and I have been publishing this website for four years and are interested in speaking at your conference if you would like. Over the last four years we have been in contact with many, many parents of addicts and have tried to help them to understand what they’re really dealing with. We could share our experiences and insights at your conference if you’d like.

We also do a weekly radio show on addiction called Recovery Now! and would love to interview someone from your organization on our show. Is there someone who we could call?

Please let me know your thoughts,


Thanks for your reply concerning Parents of Drug Addicts

Thank you so much for your reply. I apologize that I sent you the wrong url. It should be, I had accidentally put .org. Anyway, you can find all the information about the conference there and send us a request to speak. We would LOVE to speak on your radio show! You can call the number on the contact page of the website. Thank you again for sharing our information.

I will contact you through your website

Hello Cindy,

Thanks for your correction and I have corrected the website reference on the original post. I will contact you through your website about appearing on Recovery Now! and am looking forward to hearing more about your organization:)
