Episode 12: “Interview with China Darrington (part 1)”
China Kris Darrington is the founder and director of XIX Recovery Support Services in OH. In this episode, China shares her experience of struggling with addiction while trying to parent her daughter and the difficult decision of placing her son up for adoption. China’s unique perspective allows those with little or no frame of reference in dealing with substance abuse to put themselves in the shoes of someone who has walked the road and come out on the other end successful. This is a must-listen episode for anyone working with parents who may have dealt with or are currently in recovery for substance abuse. Also, a special thanks to Sandy and the team at Hope Women’s Center for all the work they’re doing to help parents succeed! #HelpingParentsSucceed
