learned: Parents are enablers, I cannot fix it, my child may lie, my child may steal, others don't want them around, I may have to ask them to leave the home, life will never be the same.
When we begin the terrible journey of turmoil and horrific consequences that the life of an addict involves, we are forced to learn and try to understand. It is only then that we are able to empathize with the addict while making sure that we take the time to "save ourselves"
As parents, we will do ANYTHING to take away the pain and smooth the road for our loved ones, but we must be aware of certain truths because even as we struggle against the truth, we find that we're we are powerless. We accept what wish was not true. By accepting the truth, we can begin to help the addict by helping ourselves.
The Hope Dealer Project was founded in 2015 after fighting addiction with loved ones for over 8 years and... then a fatal overdose of a loved one. The overwhelming sadness and helplessness one feels when this happens is indescribable. We want to make sure that NO ONE ever has to go through this alone! There are resources and support available.
We are all horrified at this epidemic we find friends, loved ones and the citizens of Martinsburg in and we will no longer accept it. We are fixing the things we can no longer accept! The women who make up The Hope Dealer Project are extremely passionate about helping others because of our up close and personal experiences with drug addiction of loved ones and how difficult it is to not only service the destruction, but to learn to thrive.
