Ep 87: The Significance of Family Week in Treatment
When Laurie M.’s husband, Sam, checked into MARR (which you can hear about in episode 86), the relationships in their family were strained. Now, Laurie says, her marriage with Sam is better than ever, and there has been significant healing between her children and Sam. She credits a lot of the progress to the work that she and her kids were able to do in MARR’s Family Program. While her husband, Sam, was learning how to live in sobriety, Laurie was learning about her part in the family disease of addiction. She also learned how she could find her own path to recovery. She particularly credits Family Week at MARR, which her kids attended as well, as profoundly impacting their family life, both for herself and Sam, as well as their two kids.
