February 27, 2018 – According Angela Sheppard, Director of Emerson House, an inpatient addiction treatment center for women run by Gosnold, the normalization of moms drinking is a problem. “I think talking about needing wine, or needing to drink in order to be a mom, is really dangerous,” she said. Sheppard told us that over the past decade, the majority of resources at Emerson House have gone to help those with opioid addiction, but recently she’s seen a shift. “Definitely over the past year, we have seen an increase in alcoholics seeking treatment,” she told WBZ. Sheppard attributes that to the more open dialogue about addiction because of the opioid crisis. Laura is hoping to see a shift in that wine culture in the mom world.
