Allyson shares, “As a parent of three sober alcoholic daughters and becoming an addiction psychotherapist with a master of science in substance abuse, as well as working with hundreds of parents with stories similar to her own, Mary was able to utilize her knowledge and experience to aid parents in their own recovery, avoiding the pitfalls of enabling and codependency. No one can truly understand the grief and despair that comes with having an addicted child but for another parent that has ridden the same roller coaster of emotions. This book can help parents/family with their own pain and sorrow caused by having an addicted loved one. She feels God has been preparing her for this task her whole life. It’s her mission to help as many parents as she can by sharing common behaviors, attitudes, and emotions that come with having an addicted child, letting them know they are not alone. By reading her book, parents/family will realize there is ‘hope in hell.’ Parents/family can find out where they are in the grieving process, gaining insight for moving through their grief, ultimately finding hope, joy, peace, serenity, and the vitality for living life.

Addiction has a negative impact on approximately 211 million people living in the United States.”
