For many Colorado moms, this time of year pushes a lot of emotional buttons and adds stress to the burdens they are already carrying from past trauma, substance use and the demands of motherhood. But, as you’ll see in this edition of our newsletter, this season is also a powerful time of reconnection. For many courageous, strong moms in recovery, one of the most incredible outcomes of treatment is reconnecting to their children. To their own parents and extended families. Even to themselves. They are finding ways to reconnect to the community, to services that are available to them and to meaningful relationships with people who support them.
