When a parent discovers their child is using alcohol or other drugs or they've been trying to get their child to stop, but nothing seems to work, getting a big-picture overview can be a huge help. Cathy Taughinbaugh's Regain Your Hope online course does this and will be an excellent resource for parents dealing with a child's substance use.
We don’t have to do it alone.
Holli Kenley, MA, LMFT
I highly recommend Regain Your Hope for any parent or guardian who is struggling in their relationship with their child, not just in the area of substance use or addiction but with other behavioral challenges as well.
An Indispensable Resource
For parents seeking help navigating the pain, fear, and frustration of loving a child suffering from substance use disorder, Cathy Taughinbaugh has created the online course 'Regain Your Hope.’ Compassionate and comprehensive, this course covers the myriad issues parents face and provides tools for moving forward--in manageable, self-paced bites. An indispensable resource in regaining sanity, perspective, and hope.
This sensible material supports all people in the family
