In this episode, we discuss the struggle that families go through when they are dealing with addiction. Due to the global pandemic, families have seen a marked increase in addiction.
To unpack how to support these families, we hear first from “Mama Bear,” a mother that walked through addiction with her son. She gives us a real-life, vulnerable, and honest perspective of the struggle.
Next, we talk with Dr. Chip Dodd, founder of Sage Hill and co-founder of Bent Tree Counseling Centers. He takes us deeper into what’s going on in the mind of an addict, helping explain in simple terms how best to understand what’s happening and what to do about it.
