Dave Cooke is a Dad who has been on a roller coaster experience with his son’s ten-year heroin addiction journey. He is all too familiar with the pain of failure and disappointment associated with addiction. In his quest to save his son, his business was nearly ruined, his health suffered, and his personal and family relationships were nearly destroyed.
Once he realized how broken his life had become, he began a journey of personal healing and discovery which has completely transformed all aspects of his life, especially in his family and with his son. Through 100Pedals, Dave is committed to changing lives impacted by substance abuse and addiction. His primary focus is on the family, especially dads, who play such a critical role in guiding the family through their own healing journey from their experiences with the chaos of addiction.
The following is a list of programs and resources, beyond his blogs and podcasts, to help families navigate the chaos of a loved one’s addiction and find healing in their brokenness.

Knowing how difficult the journey is for parents struggling with the addiction of a child, I created these two audios designed to provide basic structural support for responding to the issue of addiction. The principles shared in these audios grounded me in incredibly powerful ways. There is so much more to uncover as you go through the educational process; but, this is a great place to start. Please let me know how they helped you. I am always interested in learning more about your story, your journey, and discovering ways I can be a resource for you.
