Today’s featured guest brings her powerful perspective to a very painful, personal story. On April 12, 2013, Arlene Rice lost her youngest son, Gabriel, to his addiction. Through her extended addiction journey, Arlene has lived, learned, and experienced a great deal. From the moment she held her son Gabriel in her arms for the last time, nearly two years ago, she embarked on a passionate journey of faith, advocacy and education.
On today’s conversation she shares very moving and comforting perspectives for parents who are dealing with the addiction of child and for parents who have lost a child to their addiction. Arlene reminds each of us there is incredible power and peace to be discovered and accessed in the resources around us.
Arlene’s message of faith, hope, love and restoration are quite compelling. She brings wisdom, drawn from reflections from the past and the knowledge of the present, to the addiction and parenting discussion. Those who take the time to listen to this podcast will be truly blessed for having done so.
