An Open Letter

On Saturday, February 18, I wrote an open letter to 15 or so parents of addicts and other concerned people both in the mental health field and friends with whom I have shared some of our family’s struggles.

I have been getting many requests to confirm that I wrote the letter. I did.

I have been getting a great deal of support and encouragement. Also many families of other addicted teens in our community have reached out.

Your responses have been greatly appreciated and I will reply to all. My first priority though is to talk with the parents of other addicted teens, so please be patient.

Thank You
