I realize we have NA or AA etc to go express our thoughts and feeling to one another (all being the same). But I also feel there should a bigger platform or agenda of some kind where parents can "tell their story" so that parents of non-addicts can or will pay close attention to their children and maybe "avoid" any future issues. Also it would be a eye opener to show that the addicts aren't as bad of people as they might think, they are "sick" and need help, some compassion should be given, as to their condition, and I know those who have never been involved with this problem will yell "put them in jail" just pray to God it never hits your family.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matthew 7:7-8
