Discover tips and tricks on how we can keep ourselves healthy when we are in a relationship with an addict. You can also hear from holistic health and wellness professionals that share insight into keeping yourself well. Although Melissa confesses she does not have it all figured out, through the help of seminars, life coaches, and wellness professionals she has been able to work through her feelings of sadness, guilt, and shame associated with having two younger brothers struggle with drug addiction. After one brother passed away, she decided that his death would not be in vain. Only recently after watching Johann Hari's Ted Talk: Everything You Know About Addiction is Wrong did she decided to take action by focusing on inspiring hope and change by providing love and support to friends and family members of addicts. “Be the change you wish to see in the world” - Gandhi

Easy Listening Recovery Support

As a 5 year sober, recovered alcoholic I've seen addiction support in a variety of formats, but I've not heard a podcast that is what I consider as focused and easy to listen to as this one. Thank you for providing an additional resource for those of us that need it.

Great Podcast!

This is a great podcast. Melissa has interesting guests that helped me understand many factors that contribute to addiction and how we can walk towards health and wholeness.

"No is a complete sentence"

I really appreciated this--it's the truth. Gentle and encouraging, and inspires getting people to be in touch with what may be a small quiet voice inside by listening to your gut. Anyone in need of help with self care and codependency would be helped by this.
