It's Not Your Fault!
I'm an addiction professional, and my own daughter spent four long years struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. She hid her addictive using so well that we couldn't figure out what was at the root of so much chaos...so many problems.
She finally realized this was not the path she wanted to follow, and we are thankful that she is now four years into sustained recovery. So, if this can affect our family, it can happen to any of us. The key difference is I knew what to do to not make her situation worse and how to help when she was ready.

Imagine going on vacation with your husband with no worries of what will happen while you are away.
Imagine being able to celebrate your son or daughter’s recovery success AND their life success (just like all the other parents)
Imagine curling up on the couch listening to your son or daughter express recognition of the ways in which their drug use and their behavior hurt you and expressing gratitude for your willingness to help and not give up on them

Opioid Abuse Is On The Rise. It Is Now The Leading Cause of Death In Adults Under 50!
Here are some things that might surprise you about opioids!
Not everyone experiences sedation with opioid use. In fact, for many people, opioids provide an energizing boost that helps them be more productive and engaged with work.
The drug dentists and physicians prescribe every day for mild to moderate pain management, Vicodin or hydrocodone, is in the same drug class with heroin.
- Heroin can be used in other ways besides injecting with a syringe. It can also be snorted or smoked. Most first-time heroin users snort or smoke heroin rather than injecting .
- Not all those who develop opioid addiction had a history of abusing other substances. In fact, many who develop opioid addiction never abused other drugs, may have been able to consume alcohol successfully, and might have never acquired opioids without a legitimate prescription.

More Comments From Real Parents and Members of PTA
“Ginny brings warmth, strength, and hope to the most difficult circumstances. She doesn't give false hope or sugar coat a situation, instead, using her profound knowledge and ability to communicate clearly with love, she lays out a plan and walks with you toward better days. The advice she gives is not always easy to hear. Her directions are not always easy to take, however, she patiently encourages until progress is consistent. Most amazingly, Ginny has a unique ability to give hope to the hopeless and bring them to a place where they can once again love themselves. I can recommend Ginny without reservation."

About Ginny Mills
Ginny has been counseling with adults, adolescents, and parents and leading relapse prevention groups for over 25 years. She is the founder of Full Life Counseling & Recovery since its inception in 2008. Recognizing just how many parents lack access to hope, education, consultation and support, she developed Parenting Through Addiction: The Other PTA to meet that need for families everywhere.
Have you ever been told by a counselor: "Get help for yourself"
We know. You are not the one with the problem. Your son gets high, not you (well, probably not). You grasp that the drugs are causing problems for your daughter, but they are her problems, right?! Oh really. Hmmm. I'm guessing that HER problems have become YOUR problems LOTS of times! If you're like most parents, your child's legal, medical, academic, financial problems have certainly caused problems in your life, and we bet you're tired of it!
Your body and mind were not created with the expectation that you will live in a constant state of fear and high-alert. Adrenalin and cortisol are supposed to give you bursts of energy to react to immediate threats, but when you live with high-Adrenalin and high-cortisol levels most of the time, it takes a serious toll on your body.
Treatment Center Family Programs Have Their Limits!
Many treatment programs offer great opportunities for families to learn about addiction, communication, boundaries and recovery. You may have attended several and therefore think you've learned what you need to know. But just like rehab alone is not enough to ensure stable recovery, neither are family programs. Our "Families Recover: The First Year" course will help you navigate the distinctive challenges of the first year of recovery. And just like you want your son or daughter to keep going to meetings and doing their recovery work, we hope you'll participate in our weekly Endurance Meeting to keep learning, connecting and finding comfort in the realization that you are not alone and your experiences are shared by so many other families.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee
You are fully protected by our 100% Satisfaction-Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with your experience at Parenting Through Addiction, just let us know and we will gladly refund your investment for the last 30 day period of your membership.

Frequently Asked Questions
I know my son is using, and there have been SOME problems, but how can I know if this is really addiction? If it's not, is this site really for me?
We know that not all substance use results in addiction, but when it does, we advocate for early treatment (rather than waiting for the proverbial "rock bottom"). The FREE mini-course will help you draw some conclusions about whether use has likely progressed to addiction -- or at least if it has progressed enough to warrant engaging the services of a professional to offer further assessment. Even if use is not yet addictive, you may find that having more information and support from other parents helps until it's clear one way or another. You will find other parents in similar situations in the Thursday night Endurance Meeting.
I'm kind of confused. So, is this counseling, or what?! Exactly what is this?
No, PTA is an education and consultation membership site, not counseling. While our consultants are also professional counselors, our role here is different. PTA provides an affordable, accessible, convenient way online for parents to learn about substance use and how to address it at all stages on the journey. There are online courses with video lessons and other resources by topic; inspirational and hopeful engagement; resources to help with treatment selection; and an opportunity to engage with other parents on the journey. Even the private consultations offered are not therapy. Consultants collect information about each family situation and offer solutions and resources to match identified needs.
My daughter has been to the same treatment center 3 times, and it just didn't work. Why should I even consider spending all that money again?
Treatment centers are like colleges, churches and Rotary Clubs. They may all study some of the same things, but they can vary a LOT depending on the culture, the values of the leadership, where they are located, and what kinds of facilities and services they offer. Sometimes treatment doesn't work because it's a bad fit for the patient, and sometimes it doesn't work because the patient is not yet willing enough to learn about addiction and to do the very hard work of recovery. If your son (or you) balked at aftercare recommendations, then that could explain why treatment didn't work. Our Parent Guide to Understand Rehab, Parent Guide to Choosing Treatment, and my book explaining the importance of aftercare could be very helpful. Other parents in the Endurance meeting can be helpful as well.
