"Allison has helped me (greatly) to understand and deal with an addicted child. She has shown me/instructed me/guided me that many of my best intentions, have had the oppposite effect on my daughter's life. She has also been wonderful at helping the two of us navigate together out of this nightmare. She has provided me with the necessary strength to deal with the never ending challenges and surprises facing me. I respect her style and her as a person."
