This is Linda’s story; so sad yet powerful testimony for the need to involve families in addiction treatment, and what happens when families are not involved/supported. Which is ALWAYS. We can and we MUST do better. How do you help your partner when you’re struggling with addiction and need to focus on your recovery? Plus, the few resources out there primarily focus on parents of teens/young adults; there’s nothing for partners, or different age groups. As one of only twenty-two in the U.S. Certified CRAFT Clinicians, my family coaching is customized to meet the needs of you and your family/chosen family regardless of age, orientation, nature of relationship.
