Show Notes

I deal  with people in recovery every day.  I see the heartbreak, the frustration, the denial.  But I also see moments of light...when the breakthroughs happen...when you can start to exhale and yes...start living again.  

This week's guest is proof of that.  She knows firsthand about the challenges a family faces when someone they love is an addict, and the utter feeling of hopelessness that comes with it.

Beverly is the author of, BALM® The Loving Path to Family Recovery. This book has helped thousands find the path to family recovery and is a staple for family recovery treatment centers nationwide. In this book, she tells her own family recovery story and gives families the skills to get their lives back while helping their struggling loved ones get theirs back as well. She is also the author of her own blog, e-books, numerous articles in recovery publications, and several workbooks and manuals for students of the BALM® Program.

This episode is POWERFUL and is meant to be shared, so that it may help either you or someone you know and love.  There is always hope.
