The Parent Project

The Parent Project is a video series of personal recovery stories shared by young people and their parents.

Stories of Addiction

Read through this collection of stories shared by parents and young people who have had personal experiences with substance use. Their courage dealing with the challenges of a loved one’s substance use disorder or going through their own treatment and recovery may be inspirational. We are deeply grateful to them for sharing their experiences here.

Sharing your own experiences with substance use or that of a loved one may help other young people and families going through similar issues and help them feel less isolated. To share your story, contact us at

Please note:  These are personal stories of addiction – some may contain difficult themes such as drug use and overdose that readers may find difficult to read about.
