Our Published Book: Our published book, The Letter was written to help children grasp the idea
of a substance use disorder as an illness and how to overcome shame.
In this book Annie receives a letter from her mother, who is living in a rehabilitation center due to her substance use, while Annie resides with her
grandparents. Annie learns courage from her mother's choice to seek help
and in turn seeks help for her issues. This strength based book helps a child
understand what is happening with their parent while striving to empower the reader(s).
Like all of our book, this one ends with a coping skill for the reader to master.
