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.

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.
