Addiction is a devastating and all-embracing disease. Family members are often as profoundly affected by the illness as the person who suffers from it. Imagine what a child must think watching a parent descend deep into addiction, changing from a loving and nurturing mother into a hostile, screaming stranger.
But there is hope for addicts and their families. This book is about Janey, a young girl whose mother has entered a center for addiction treatment.
Written in easy-to-understand language with brightly colored illustrations, Mommy’s Gone to Treatment addresses issues children often face when an addicted parent seeks help.
Included is a parent’s guide with important talking points on easing a child’s apprehension when someone they love confronts their illness.
