I have often wondered how my children are affected by the disease of alcoholism that runs in our family.
There is a high chance that I may have to go through some traumatic ordeals through their teens and early adult years.
It scares me to death. Although I was completely a basketcase and felt as though I was struggling to even survive, I know I put my poor parents through holy Hell!
It was a long, scary, bumpy ride for all of us!
There is a really nice teen drug rehab in California for kids who are struggling like I was.
They do follow twelve-step programs, but, they also have a unique and positive approach to helping adolescents through this rough time focusing on Empowerment, Choices, Hope, and Opportunities.
