LOVE IN THE TRENCHES
Erasing the shame of addiction with love,
and therein lies hope.
LITT is a voice of reason in an experience that has no reason.
LITT offers support groups, recovery resources, private peer counseling and education to parents of those who suffer with substance use disorder and to individuals who have lost a child or sibling to this disease. LITT is committed to erasing the stigma of shame associated with SUD through our work in harm reduction and education for all members of the community.
As parents of someone in active addiction, we are walking the trenches to one outcome or another, acknowledging that the only outcome for our addicted child is death or recovery.
This journey is painful, isolating, and often feels shameful. We are here to support one another, no matter the outcome. We are in agreement that love is at the core of our relationship with our child. We are here to share our stories without shame, and support one another in making healthy choices as we walk this walk.
