Parent of An Adult Addict offers priceless insight into what one Christian family experienced the night their daughter was found unconscious in their basement from an overdose of heroin.
Exploring the questions which most often press parents of addicts, Arlene Boehnlein-Rice shares hard earned wisdom and education on the signs and symptoms a parent needs to know to spot suspected drug abuse by their child, resources for finding support, practical approaches in dealing with your child, and encouragement to know you are not alone on this road.
Once Arlene Boehnlein-Rice began to share her story, phone calls and emails began to stream in from other parents asking questions of how to get help, what to do, and what not to do for their heroin addicted adult child.
Even though their daughter survived her overdose Arlene Boehnlein-Rice and her husband Keith's story continues by leaving you with a parent's worst nightmare. The powerful tragic ending leads to a family's faith being tested to its very core.
The author, a seminary graduate, reveals lessons she has learned along this difficult trail of being a parent of an addict. But rather than turning from her faith or abandoning the God she'd depended upon, Arlene eventually finds a deeper hope and a renewed faith to continue to persevere no matter her child's outcome.
As you read this grievous yet compelling account, you will find direction for the next step and encouragement after life's difficulties. Whether you are new to the journey or a seasoned sojourner on this trajectory as a parent of an addict, you will find guidance and inspiration in this heart-wrenching real life story.
