At my website, CathyTaughinbaugh.com I offer coaching and a mom's support group for parents who are struggling because of their children's substance use. The more we bring to light the devastation of substance use and addiction, the more we bring families out of isolation, thus allowing them to feel comfortable seeking the support that they need.

• Support Group for Moms
I'm a peer parent coach with the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids
