    I have recommended this site to a stranger who is related to someone I barely know. I do NOT know what trouble their teen son is in. I DO know that the Mom is going through the pain, confusion, fear etc. that many of us have experienced
    in the past.

    If you have chosen to read for awhile, you are like most of us
    who first explored the CD Board. If you choose to register with a name of your choosing, you will remain anonymous as
    we all are. I can't even begin to tell you how much comfort
    most of us have gained from just knowing that other "nice" people have kids (referred to as difficult child's here...Gifts from God)
    who have chosen to experiment with crime, drugs, etc. etc.

    This section has been pretty quiet lately. You can read the
    Archives if you want to see how others have coped. Welcome
    I hope this helps you survive the rough road. DDD

    Welcome, lurker. DDD has given you great advice. Yes, we are a group who truly understands what it is like to have a child with substance abuse issues and can truly relate to the pain, fear, anger, love, sadness, etc. feelings that go along with it.

    Welcome aboard.
