As a parent of a young adult suffering with addiction, it meant the world to me to be received with love and validation by everyone at Shining Light. Peer support is the number one meaningful tool I have in my arenal now. By sharing lived experiences with us, Shining Light has helped us in two ways. We now understand the purpose behind setting boundaries as well as how to continue to love our child as we navigate addiction as a family. Diane has gently counseled myself and my husband around the subject of enabling and boundaries, which has taught my husband and I to work as a team and not keep secrets anymore. By establishing firm boundaries, I feel that I’m now helping my child towards recovery rather than helping them stay in active addiction. I will be forever grateful to Shining Light for their ferocious fight for my family’s health and well-being.
