Insightful new podcast!
Found this podcast truly helpful - what I appreciated was the good, solid advice (as opposed to some new fad), validating the importance of relationships and listening, the reality of the way that change works.
This show really explains both why addiction is such a huge issue and how experts are rethinking both its causes and treatment in a way that particularly resonates with some of us who are members of groups that were once considered both sick and immoral and expected to be cured by being punished - in my case the LGBT community.
The Beyond Addiction show is critical for any family members strugggling with a Love One who has SUD. I'm going to listen faithfully. Thank you!!
