If your child has a drug or alcohol issue, you may be struggling with questions: What do I do now? Can my marriage and my family survive this? How do we hold it together when everything is falling apart? How do we help our child without wiping ourselves out financially? Do we need to create an estate plan with our addicted child in mind? Our child is completing treatment and will be coming home. What do we do now? Our child is in legal trouble-again. Do we let our child face the consequences, or do we step in to help? How do I protect myself while trying to save my child? Part memoir and part survival manual, The Addicts' Mom tackles these tough questions to help parents cope, survive, and make smart choices through a child's addiction and recovery. Attorney Cassandra Collins combines her legal expertise with her experiences on the roller-coaster, heart-wrenching, learn-as-you-go journey through her own two sons' addictions. "We thought we were somehow immune from drug addiction. That happened to other families. We were just dealing with a rebellious teen. It would pass. We could handle it. Sometimes the greatest issues in life aren't brought on by the wrong answers, but in the questions we don't face or ask ourselves." Practical, straightforward, and honest, The Addicts' Mom takes on the tough issues of addiction-from treatment options, codependency, family dynamics, and the recovery process. It also provides useful advice and a comprehensive list of resources to help families wade through the legal and financial issues that often come with addiction. Above all else, The Addicts' Mom is written by a mom-a mom who survived her journey through her sons' addiction and came out on the other side. It is her hope that her experiences can help ease the pain of addiction for other families.

Review:

If you have a question or are curious about a specific aspect of addiction from treatment of addiction, to legal and financial considerations for the parents, to life after treatment including relapse, The Addict's Mom: A Survival Guide has answers and resources for you. Covering the shoulds and the should nots, Cassandra A. Collins, a mom of a two addicts, has put together a desperately needed book for parents and close family members of addicts.  The Addict's Mom is a powerful resource to help parents and families truly survive and come out on the other side together.

Red City Review

"For a mother to lay open the gut-wrenching devastation of watching two sons struggle with drug addictions takes a forthright courage that few of us have. Yet Collins does this with a practical, no-nonsense approach that amazes and educates. This is straight-forward advice for any parent who suspects or knows that a child is using drugs."

A. Nelson, Minnesota

"A powerful 'no holds barred' chronicle of a family's journey through the minefields of addiction, the struggle of recovery, and the quagmire of legal detritus encountered and told through the eyes of a mother who has weathered it all. The legal ramifications are mind-boggling. I had no idea. I am a concerned grandfather."

Michael C., Washington State

 Ms. Collin's book has given my heart insight into the family atmosphere that surrounds addiction.  Most important of all, this entire book, authored by an attorney, offers concrete directions and solutions.

The cover indicates that the book is 'A Financial, Legal and Personal Guide for Parents of Teens and Adult Children with Drug and Alcohol Issues'.  I would widen the market and recommend this book be required reading for professionals who work with families that may be suffering this illness."
B. Holder, Wisconsin
