Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week

“Join the national – and international – awareness campaign to break the painful silence and offer hope to the vulnerable kids and teens impacted by parental addiction.  With addiction now a national health epidemic, and communities across the country struggling with ever-increasing drug overdoses, the impact on children today is staggering. Child welfare programs continue to swell because of addiction, and kinship programs are sprouting up across the country as grandparents and other family members step in to help these children in need.  While some of these children find a supportive adult who helps protect them from the worst, others may be alone and unaware that healing is possible.  As rates monitoring addiction continue to rise, we cannot afford to forget the countless children – those who are often the first hurt by this devastating disease.  The time is more important now than ever to bring these children hope, support, and ultimately healing. Be the caring and supportive adult to help make a difference that could last a lifetime.”
