Welcome to the Attachment Disorder Support Group (ADSG)! ADSG is a division of Trauma Headquarters.   It is a division of Trauma Headquarters because if you have a child who suffers from Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), then most likely your child also suffers from early childhood trauma. Actually, the trauma is probably what caused your child to develop RAD.  To treat RAD you must also treat and understand the trauma.

Here you will find information on attachment disorder, bonding, special needs children, real life testimonials, people, and much more!   You will find families that have adopted children, foster children, step children, and biological children.  Make yourself comfortable, for there is a great deal of information available on this site.   I hope you enjoy your visit.

For those of you who are new to this site you may be stressed to your limits and wondering if there is any hope. Yes, there is hope! Change will take time and research. It is imperative that you have a support group around you of family and/or friends. There are several options for you here on ADSG. You may chat on the message forum or in the Live Chat Room. People you meet through ADSG will understand your needs, and together you can build a network of strength, hope and joy.

"Tonight, when you lay your head on your pillow, forget how far you still have to go.   Look instead at how far you've already come."

Theme Song for Attachment Disorder Support Group! 

Nothing but Cash
This is a story about a horse and  how "scared" can actually be more dangerous than "mean." You will be amazed at how this story is so similar to humans!
