Kim Palmer was born & raised in Portland, and is currently a resident of Tigard, Oregon. Kim is a wife and a mom to two adult children, one of which suffers from Substance Use Disorder. That discovery lead Kim on an online search to find support. Kim found an online forum where she "met" five wonderful women, who she still talks with a couple times a week. As that forum changed, Kim moved on to another online group called The Addict's Mom, where she became very involved. Kim currently serves as a National Page Administrator, Regional Administrator in the Western States, and Oregon State Chapter Administrator. These online groups are closed Facebook groups which have given many thousands of moms direct peer support in their times of fear, pain and uncertainty. Through her personal experiences Kim has learned much, and is now able to support others who walk this same journey with an addicted "child".
