Timbi Talks about Addiction is a 28 page superbly illustrated picture book designed to help children cope with a parent’s substance use disorder (SUD). Through Timbi, children learn that: addiction is a disease, it is not their fault, their varied emotions are valid. Timbi teaches them coping skills that they can use whether they are alone, or with a trusted adult to give them a much-needed sense of control in a chronically stressful environment. Timbi has been nationally recognized as an ideal resource to help families, teachers, counselors, physicians, judges, foster parents, and advocates in the fight against the long-term damaging impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).
