Addiction is an epidemic.

SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (, estimates more than 20 million Americans struggle with drug addiction. This also means there are more than 20 million moms who are struggling to manage the profoundly confusing dynamics of loving an addict. I know first hand how frustrating, lonely and baffling this can be.

Moms of Prodigals was started to bring moms together to talk, share, and pray with other moms who truly understand the strain addiction brings to a family. If you are reading this I personally invite you to join Moms of Prodigals. We meet in the Coffee Room on the first Tuesday of the month from 6-7 pm.

If you have questions please feel free to give me a call or text at 410-286-1631.
