Who is Sandy Swenson?

Sandy is the mother of two sons—one of whom struggles with addiction. Author of ‘The Joey Song: A Mother’s Story of Her Son’s Addiction’ [Central Recovery Press], ‘Tending Dandelions: Honest Meditations for Mothers with Addicted Children’ [Hazelden Publishing], and ‘Readings for Moms of Addicts’ App [Hazelden Publishing], Sandy lives in the place where love and addiction meet—a place where help enables and hope hurts.

Sandy is a voice for moms of children suffering with the disease of addiction, putting their thoughts and feeling into words. Her latest project is MomPower.org, an easy to navigate hub connecting moms with addicted children to a world of help, hope, and empowerment.

Sandy lives in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota. When she isn’t writing or traveling to speak with other parents coping with the disease of addiction in their family, Sandy enjoys gardening, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

  1. I had never heard of Sandy Swenson until I came across her book, Joey’s story online.
    I am halfway through The book and I wish I could put into words how superb her writing/strength/courage Is in the face of The horrible disease of addiction. I wish her peace and joy.
