Hero of the Week

okay, so it has been about a year since I posted a hero.


Today’s hero is unlikely .  It has been said that Drink is the only madness that people CHOOSE to have. For those folks, the Road to Sobriety can be a madness all its own.

I see families torn apart by substance abuse. Getting clean while parenting is almost an oxy moron.

Today’s heroes are lovations that let you bring your children into therapy with you.
