Theresa’s favorite piece of literature to use for outreach purposes is the reprint "Parents of Alcoholics" (R-18) in Episode 5’s part 3 of 4.  It’s only 12 pages, but so powerful!  She shares the moment she hit her “bottom” and what brought her into the Al-Anon program.  We also talk about being able to differentiate between helping versus enabling and what is one thing a parent can definitely do for their alcoholic child.

QUOTABLE MOMENT FROM THERESA:

  • "...our children come through us, not to us."
