Adult Children in Jails and Prisons

  • “Some of our behavior has been disturbing and perhaps outside the bounds of law.”
  • “We cannot fix our car, pay bills, or stay out of jail without recovery.”
  • “Adult children run the gamut of functionality as adults. Many are high-powered professionals; others are in prison. And certainly some are doing both.”
  • Some adult children have committed crimes that have caused them to spend time in prison or lose their family and job.”
  • “Carrying the ACA message of hope into a prison or treatment center is a good way of paying society back for harms against the greater public. This benefits our personal recovery as well. We get out of ourselves and help create a better society by helping the suffering adult child.”
  • There are many pages in the fellowship text that go into detail about these types of scenarios. ( 292, 613, 515, 546)
