Podcast #55—Attaching & Detaching—What Does This Even Mean?

CUFA red pointilés

(36min)  Have we not all heard the phrase "You just need to detach" when it comes to navigating life in the midst of active addiction?  But…how exactly is this done?  Is detaching even the appropriate way to go about the relationship? Listen to this week's episode with Annie and Allies in Recovery's Founder Dominique Simon-Levine as they discuss the meaning of detaching, and how to ATTACH in healthy ways.  Annie shares true life examples from actual family members and readers, and Dominique gives some pretty amazing, expert CRAFT Method direction to each one; as if she were counseling them in person.  Great episode for ANY family!
