"I do have say, I’m so happy I joined the sisterhood group! All the videos are so awesome! I can watch them at my convenience and it really feels like Valerie is talking to me! She is! Tears fill up my eyes & chills on my arms:) it’s very enlightening to hear her speak and the wisdom she gives us! I have even bought a notebook and I have printed out all the print outs she gives us to put in it! It goes with me in my “big bag” everywhere I go! When I have a break at work, or at home when Everyone goes to bed, I pull it out & read! Each month she adds more videos & worksheets! Ladies, I know we have spent many many $ on our adult children and some of us are running on low BUT… I would sooo recommend treating yourself to this amazing group & have Valerie working with you one on one!!"
"Dear Valerie, thanks so much for the weekly battle tips. They always give me a boost. I am dealing with two sons that are addicts and any info I can learn is helpful. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate the service you are doing. Keep up the good work."
"Your book is real and raw and is what I understand. I don’t feel so alone and out of my mind anymore. Thank you for writing your story. There are so many moms walking this painful path, wondering where we went wrong. Standing together, reaching out to each other and holding hands is the lifesaver of us all."
"Every time I read something Valerie has written, or listen to/ watch a video, it’s always like she’s telling MY story, or talking about MY life. work…Once I decided that I didn’t want to be sad and miserable all the time, and walking around like a zombie just going thru the motions of life, while it just kept passing me by, I found Valerie’s book and read it all the weekend it came in the mail.Then, when she started the sisterhood, I knew I HAD to join. I immerse myself in my recovery. And Valerie’s books, Videos, and encouragement keep me going. They help keep me standing!"
"I have joined/followed/liked/attended/read/re-read/researched many meetings, articles, studies, books, FB pages, and support groups. I want you to know I have gotten more understanding, empathy, sympathy, support and encouragement from your books, posts, and emails than any of the above. Your story somehow connects with me on a gut and heart level, and leaves me feeling stronger and more hopeful & peaceful than any of the above."
"We need U Valerie. Encouraging us to fight our own demons!"
"I read most of your book on a plane today and started the workbook. This has totally saved my sanity! I feel at such peace."
"Valerie walked me step by step through the healing process and I can say without exaggeration, Valerie Silveira has given me my life back. Yes my son is still an addict, but I am no longer living a life of pain and sadness. I am living a life of happiness and joy. Because of Valerie Silveira, I am Still Standing After All the Tears."
"I have battled the beast of codependency and enabling and depression for waaay tooooo long. Those beasts have kept me down on the mat, sometimes to the point of wanting to be beat, knocked out and put out of my misery. BUT NO MORE. I AM CHOOSING TO STAND UP AND FIGHT! WOO HOO!!!"
