• It's Not About You, Except When It Is A Field Manual For Parents of Addicted Children
Based on the author's own experience as a parent of an addicted child, and intended to help parents navigate the confusing and challenging landscape of the strange "Planet Paradox" to which they have seemingly been transported. The author is a caring cheerleader who encourages parents in this situation with a range of helpful "Do's" and "Don'ts," and other self-care tools.

“If you could distill all of the substance abuse texts written for professionals into one book that tells parents what they need to know, in a way they need to hear it, so they can use it, you would get this book. This is a compelling heart rending story of a mother earning wisdom, and her willingness to share that with others. I fully intend to use it as a resource and guide for families who come to me seeking help for their child (of any age) who is dealing with an addiction.”

“I know of no other book that provides so much assistance to every parent with children suffering from addiction.This beautifully written book was crafted from true life experience and an open heart.
Addiction is a thief both to the addicted child and the parent. This is a long-awaited book that offers promise and hope to the struggling parent and the total family. My gratitude to Barbara Victoria for the meaningful, purposeful, and compassionate gift she has given all parents and families who deal with the moment-by-moment trials and tribulations of an addicted child.”
Linda Tatum, LMFT

LIBRARY JOURNAL:
(starred review) "Barbara Victoria has lived with the addictions of an adult child and has come out intact with an abundance of aid for other parents in similar positions. She helps readers dispense with good intentions, assumptions, and platitudes that no longer work, then guides them in dealing with the current situation in a manner that enables growth and health for both parent and child. Help for parents who are going through this particular hell is finally here in the form of this riveting book."
