In this episode, we hear from two parents, Patti and Andrew A., who sent two of their sons to MARR at different times. They discuss how the addictions their sons were struggling with began to affect the whole family. Through MARR’s family program, Patti and Andrew began to see addiction as a family disease. They explain how their lives were affected by trying to manage things that were outside of their control. Today they are active in their own recovery and give their sons the space to work on their own recoveries as well. They have found this approach to be healthier and more supportive for everyone. The material that they cover is featured in our new family workbook, Addressing Addiction in the Home, which we also discuss in our conversation.
