Podcast #39 Accountability

(55:12) What is accountability and why is it important for families facing SUD? In this episode, Laurie goes over the meaning of accountability and how a movement of consequences for our kids began some years ago that included a level of shame and punishment that does not work. Your hosts discuss experiences with accountability including apologizing to their sons for handling them with fear and shaming tactics. Great episode for those who are ready to "drop the weapons" and approach their loved one with wisdom, compassion, love and hope!
