Maybe you want to share your story with others in hopes of helping other people with their recovery.

    Ep. 011 - How to Trust a Loved One After So Much Hurt

    Ep. 011 - How to Trust a Loved One After So Much Hurt

    Do you wrestle with wanting to trust your loved one even though they’ve lost your trust over and over again? Maybe you want to start giving them small freedoms but don’t know when it’s the right time. Or maybe you want to show your loved one that you want to be able to trust them but you don’t know where to start. 
    This week, I am driving home one of the major issues when it comes to loving those in recovery: learning how to trust after so much dishonesty. I share my personal experience of how I earned back my mother’s trust after two years of living in recovery and how this trust came with new freedoms. When it comes to trust, it’s not easily earned after much turmoil. However, trust can be redeemable, it just takes time to earn it back.
    Topics Discussed:
    Why trust needs to be earned, not freely given The process in showing up for yourself and your relationships

    Ep. 010 - How to Show a Loved One You Care While Also Maintaining Your Own Mental Health

    Ep. 010 - How to Show a Loved One You Care While Also Maintaining Your Own Mental Health

    Do you ever feel stress or anxiety from your loved one’s addictive behaviors? When was the last time you actually took time for your own healing? Maybe you forgot what it’s like to take care of yourself because you’ve always had to take care of other people. Or maybe you can’t remember the last time you allowed yourself to simply enjoy the environment around you.
    This week, I am talking about the importance of loving yourself through the recovery process. Many families forget what it’s like to take care of themselves because they’ve undergone the stress of dealing with their loved one’s addictions. But I want you to know that how you show up for yourself is how you show up for others. Don’t forget to love yourself even in times of stress. The best thing you can do for your loved ones is to allow yourself time to heal and process through your own recovery journey. 
    Topics Discussed:
    Why you need to take time for yourself to heal How to show up for yourself  Reconnecting the family throughout a loved one’s recovery journey The importance of vacation time and self-care for the family

How to pick a sober living

Because my husband and I were at the point in our son’s recovery where we were looking for sober living, we found this episode extremely valuable! The interview with Ian Koch, and Mark’s input, educated me with the questions I should ask when touring sober living houses. The emphasis on actually touring sober living houses for our son was something I wasn’t aware of, and comforting for me, especially when we were trying to keep boundaries verses being an advocate for our son. Thank you!!

Bacon Socks ,

Awesome!!!

With so many people and treatment centers out there looking to just take your money and run, that outright lie to you and scam your insurance, it’s awesome to hear someone who is willing to speak the truth and spread a positive message of hope. Thank you for the service you provide Mark.

This is What the World NEEDS

Every episode has been so on point. Mark knows his stuff for sure. After this past episode (episode 5) about treatment centers employing those in recovery I had to leave a review. YES YES YES! I agree to everything Mark has said, it’s cutting edge, real life, and life saving. Keep it up. The world needs you. ~ LJ Unicorn
