"Just Like His Father" -FATHER'S DAY AND SOBRIETY

I was at a training by Claudia Black and heard her explain how if a mother or father gets high on heroin, they are abandoning their own child as much as if they had left them in a dumpster. As a recovering alcoholic, for me to put a substance in my body would feel just the same. Fortunately, my children have only known me sober, and I plan to keep it that way. 

Here's a powerful video about a father who got sober during his child's early years, but did not stay that way. I found the poem and performance incredibly moving. Happy Father's Day.
