Mom to Mom: Where Love and Addiction Meet

Center City, MN

DARC 2019 Weekend Retreat Banner

We may often feel fragile, but we are strong. And we are many. As moms, we have the power to overpower the destruction that addiction spreads. The power to trade shame and blame for strength. Sandy Swenson offers help and hope for moms living in the place where love and addiction meet—a place where help enables and hope hurts. This is a twelve-step based retreat for moms trying to figure out the difference between helping their child to live and helping their child to die. For moms grieving the loss of a child who is still alive. For moms needing to find a recovery of their own. Please join us. Together we are stronger.


Fill out the perliminary registration form and we will contact you with final details.
