Substance Abuse and Addiction


Find hope. It’s there.

Shock. Denial. Guilt. Heartbreak. Anger. Self-blame. Sadness.

You are not alone! When we suspect or discover our child is abusing drugs or alcohol the feelings can be overwhelming. Your heart may feel broken and crushed. It’s important to know you are not alone, and that there is support, hope and help for not only your child but also for you and your family.

Provided below are a few resources for treatment programs and support groups for you, your child and your family to get the help you need. I recommend you do further research, contact references, consult your doctor and check with your local Better Business Bureau. This is just a start that I hope can help you to make decisions and take the next steps.

Hi. I’m Sheryl.

Welcome to my heart, my story, and my love for Moms of Tweens and Teens.

My passion and mission for MOTTS was born out of my personal journey – a journey that took me from a place of being fearful to show others the real me, to a place of slowly opening my heart to being authentic; a place of shame wanting to hide my challenges and struggles to experiencing the grace and love of being known and accepted; a place of not knowing what to do, to a place of experiencing the healing, wisdom, and transformation that comes from being a part of a community of women who are willing to share their hearts and allow themselves to be seen and known.
