Mother of an Addict: You Can’t Ever Give Up Hope

Sheila thinks that for her youngest daughter, Casie, it all began at age 10 with a sip of a martini. Casie believes she first tried alcohol a few years later. Whichever, according to her dad, Alex, Casie’s drinking and drug use “was all pretty unstoppable; everything we tried in her early years seemed to fail.”

For more than a decade being Casie’s parents was pretty much a nightmare. By the time she checked into Malibu Beach Recovery Center at age 25 escorted by a family friend, her mother, father, and younger sister had all cut off contact.

Today Casie has more than 14 months of continuous sobriety, and has begun to build a new life for herself in Southern California. Sheila flies in often from Texas to visit, and Alex, who works in the former Soviet Union, emails back and forth regularly. Casie’s natural charm, and her fierce determination to succeed, have all helped her build a loyal support team.
