My Parent Needs Help

We want you to know that your parent's problem is not your fault.

We are here to help

We know that you are going through a tough time right now, and we want you to know that there are people here for you. We understand that your mom or dad is struggling with alcohol or drugs, and that can be really difficult to deal with. What's important is to know that you are not alone, and there are people who care about you and want to help.

It is not your fault 

First of all, we want you to know that your parent's problem is not your fault. It is not something that you caused, and there is nothing that you could have done to prevent it. Sometimes adults make choices that are not healthy, and it's not fair to expect you to fix it.

What you can do

It is important for you to take care of yourself during this time. Make sure that you're getting enough sleep, eating well, and doing things that you enjoy. It's okay to feel sad or angry or frustrated, and it's important to talk to someone about those feelings. You can talk to us, or to a teacher, or a counselor, or anyone else you trust.​

If you feel comfortable, you could also talk to your parent about their alcoholism. Let them know how their behavior is affecting you, and ask them to get help. Sometimes, people need to hear how their actions are hurting others before they will take steps to change.

Remember that there are resources available to you and your family. There are support groups for children of alcoholics, as well as counseling services and treatment programs. It can be scary to ask for help, but it's important to remember that there is no shame in reaching out.

We want you to know that you are a strong and brave person, and you will get through this. You are loved, and you deserve to be happy and healthy.
