Do you love someone who battles addiction? Trying to “survive” without the support of people who understand what you’re going through can often lead to deep feelings of shame and prolonged suffering for you and the addict. This podcast shines a light on these issues to help shift focus away from the darkness and on to a life of hope. Mothers of addicts and all family members are under immense pressure and stress, day in and day out. This can lead to incredible challenges both at work and at home. Interviews with mothers of addicts, family members, and experts who work in addiction recovery along with personal reflections and insight help shred the shame and highlight strategies that work to alleviate and eliminate common stumbling blocks for families deeply impacted by substance abuse.
