Barbara Theodosiou, a South Florida mother of four, created the The Addict’s Mom (TAM) group after discovering that two of her sons were engaged in drug addiction. The group offers several forums to mothers where they can “Share Without Shame” their experiences, of being the mother of a child in addiction. Today it has grown to over 70,000 members, with a chapter in all 50 states of the USA. Members meet online and in person to: “educate, advocate, and act as liaisons between policy makers, mental health professionals, and those suffering from the disease of addiction.” To learn more about TAM, and to find our groups, please go to:
