A Mom on a Mission: How one mom found peace in addiction’s storm

Every parent goes through the process. There are four stages to the learning curve when it comes to a child’s addiction – shock, anger, detachment, peace. Not every parent finds the third or fourth phase. This mom did. It is not easy. But, it is possible.

Today’s podcast features, Melissa Porche. Melissa is a mom whose oldest daughter is battling her addiction demons. There was a time, only months ago, where Melissa was stuck, didn’t know what to do, and realized her daughter’s problem was in complete control of her life and her family.   

Today she has found peace in the storm. She reached out, found her trusted resources, took their advice, followed her instincts, and gave it to God. This is her inspiring, insightful, and authentic story.
