Bring Them All!

Addiction is a family disease. Yet mothers are often treated in isolation from their children and partners, having to choose between getting treatment and keeping their families together.

"Bring Them All" tells the story of family-centered care through the perspectives of clients and staff at SHIELDS for Families, proving the seemingly impossible can be done: to move forward a generation of children who never experience—or even remember—the challenges of growing up with family addiction.
