ACDH is a safe non-judgemental community that allows us to identify and heal childhood trauma. We experience freedom from shame, fear, and abandonment, and with God’s help, become our own loving parents, able to live life in the present moment. Saint Thérèse of Lisieux and Saint Joseph are our ACDH patron saints — pray for us!
Welcome, new members of Adult Children of Dysfunctional Homes! To start your journey towards recovery, we suggest reading the ACA Big Red Book and subscribing to the daily meditations from ACA’s Strengthening My Recovery. We look forward to seeing you at our ACDH meetings, where you’ll find others who understand how you feel and will offer love and encouragement on this beautiful path of spiritual growth and emotional sobriety.
