To celebrate the launch of the new book: I Didn’t Cause It, I Can’t Change It. How Mothers of Adult Children with Co-Occurring Disorders Have Coped
By Mary Ryan Woods, RNC, LADC, MSHS and Adrienne Murray
I Didn’t Cause it, I Can’t Change It. How Mothers of Adult Children with Dual Disorders Coped. Explains the journey taken by fourteen mothers of adult children who have experienced Co-Occurring disorders and have graciously shared their stories. As varied as their experiences were, there were many common threads, all coming down to hope. These mothers found hope and want to share the hope they found with others who are on similar journeys.
Parenting is not an easy task. No matter the challenges that a parent or their child faces, it can be hard to know the ‘right’ thing to do. It is no wonder that oftentimes the parent of an adult child with mental illness and addiction feels alone and may not know which way to turn. Knowing how and where to find help for their son or daughter is just the beginning. After caring for their loved one, a parent must turn their attention to themselves as well.
