"I have spent so much money enabling an addiction but I knew this time the money spent was going to bring about a great reward…my own peace. It is the best investment I’ve ever made! I am worth it. My son is worth it."
- Ginger Howard, a BALM® Parent
"In the BALM, I’ve learned how to be the peace I want to see in my family. I’ve learned my daughter is not weak, irresponsible, short on faith, or any other shaming attribute often cast upon our loved ones. I’ve learned I can absolutely love her unconditionally right where she is on her journey. I’ve learned to speak to her with facts not emotions, hysteria, or judgment. I’ve remembered what it’s like to just have fun with her without any expectation of what I want her to be doing with her life. And most of all I’ve learned the choice is always mine – I can choose drama and chaos or I can choose peace and love. I can choose to contribute to her SUD or to her recovery. I can choose to cut her off or love her unconditionally. I choose life and love and therefore I choose the BALM!!."
- Lori Bolen, BALM® Coach and recovering family member
"The BALM has opened wide the doors towards recovery and clearly maps out the path to be in purpose and to purposefully share the love and the peace we have been created to be, and to enjoy. And that is how we are going to be our loved one’s best chance at recovery. I used to think drugs were winning. They don’t. Love does!"
- Joanne Richards, LCSW, Certified Facilitator of The Work, BALM Family Recovery Life Coach
