We’re getting exceptional feedback about Our Young Addicts, and it has spurred Midwestern Mama to create and curate additional content for parents and professionals who care and are concerned about young people in their lives who are using drugs and alcohol.
Here’s a quick overview of what’s coming up this week, and in the weeks ahead, for Our Young Addicts on the blog and on Twitter.
Mondays or Tuesdays will generally feature an update from Midwestern Mama
I’ll continue to share with you what’s going on in our family as our son nears his 11th month of sobriety and recovery.
Wednesdays will now feature Guest Blog posts
On Wednesday, we will kick off a weekly series of Guest Blog posts from parents, addiction professionals and young people in recovery.
- Wednesday, June 10: Our first guest blogger is a dad with a son in recovery. He’ll share what he’s learned through this experience and the changes he learned to make as part of it.
- Wednesday, June 17: Next up, our guest blogger is a young man in recovery from opiate addiction that started as a result of a high school sports injury. Now, this young man is back in college and has a job he enjoys.
- Wednesday, June 24: We’ll start a three-part series with a professional who works with families through their kids’ treatment and recovery.
Thursdays are #TBT – Throw Back Thursday
Thursdays, we’ll continue with #TBT – Throw Back Thursday – featuring a previous column from the St. Paul Pioneer Press or from this blog. There is merit in looking back and realizing the extent of this journey, including its ups and downs. It really provides perspective on where we are today and what’s possible tomorrow.
#SoberSummer Continues Daily on Twitter
On Twitter, we’ll continue our #SoberSummer tips, and I encourage you to share some tips of your own as well as checking out our Resource pages. Click around on the site to find resources for parents and professionals on a growing number of topics.
Thanks for reading, commenting and most importantly for being part of the #OYACommunity.
