Podcast #45—You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know: Awareness & Preparedness

CUFA red pointilés

(51:31)  In today's episode Annie and Laurie touch on awareness being low when it comes to how many families are struggling with an addicted or chemically dependent Loved One. They discuss what families can become aware of ahead of time versus waiting for a wake up call. From how addiction starts, what specific signs to look for, and how each of these moms would have handled certain things differently had they known a thing or two like they do now…to how to handle someone in your orbit, such as a coworker, neighbor, relative or friend that may have this going on with their son, daughter or other Loved One, our hosts explore notions of preparedness and awareness.
