Our Hope For You
Most parents who come to our workshops have reached the ends of their respective ropes. They are afraid for their kids, and often afraid of their kids. Any closeness or connection has been lost, devoured by the monster of addiction.
Our hope for parents who attend TruthTalks workshops is this: re-connection with their own young adult children whether they are using drugs or not. No matter what the circumstance, our kids need our love. Love is the constant here and, by talking in a safe, facilitated environment, with “kids who’ve been there” parents develop more space from which to hear them (space that’s not filled with rage, fear, and panic over their own kids.) In the workshops, parents lower their guards and actually discuss what was going on in these kids’ minds and hearts during their addictions. Insights from these dialogues are often translated into to a compassionate understanding of their own kids.
And that’s where the conversation really begins.
