South Florida mom helps other mothers whose children are addicted to drugs

Barbara Theodosiou is a South Florida mother making a difference.

Theodosiou started a web site to provide support for mothers dealing with children who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.

"Perhaps my biggest problem is denial," she says. "I deny, block out the pain that you and now I, your accomplice, have caused everyone in our family."

Barbara knows what that's like. Two of her four children became addicts. Her web site is called " The Addict's Mom ."

"There are two messages I want to send," she says. "One is sharing without shame, the other is together we really are stronger because by yourself it's horrible and I guess the third thing I would like to repeat is one more time is how important you are to this world."

Barbara also has a Facebook page to offer mothers support and help.
