    As we remember and celebrate those that died in service to our country, we also send lots of love out to those families who are still struggling with the addiction of a loved one. Back when Frank and I were in the muck of our own family recovery, sometimes weekends like this only served as a reminder of how far we had to go. We hope this weekend we can offer some solace; some hope that one day, you will find recovery, and have a peaceful family and home again. Until then, know that we are thinking of you, and working tirelessly to help you have access to resources that will get you where you want to be.
