Hi Anne,

First and foremost, as one who has struggled with addiction off and on since I was thirteen but his doing his best today, I just wanted to let you know I was moved by your story so thank you for sharing. The world needs more people and parents like you.

Secondly, I run a small publication called Journal of Journeys here on Medium. If you’d like to add this story or submit any other to it, let me know and I’ll gladly add you as a writer so you can do so.

I have nothing to gain from doing so, I simply would like to get this story and others like it the exposure they deserve. If not, no hard feelings and thanks again for sharing.

I wish you, your son and your entire family all the best.
