How Do I Help My Child?

Monday, July 13th

When someone in your family is dealing with an addiction disorder, it’s hard not to feel every painful emotion all at once -- anger, guilt, rage, sadness, helplessness. Today we hear from a father who is trying to get his son to accept therapy and a mom who is at the end of her rope trying to break the cycle of her daughter’s alcoholism. So, what can a family do? This week, Nzinga answers questions about how to help those in your family and how to help yourself.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Have an addiction-related question?
