Excellent Podcast

An excellent and in-depth podcast about mental health & addiction recovery!

Fascinating

Interesting to hear about how this Meadows model developed and also how patterns/family models are integral to addiction issues. Actually this idea relates to so much more than addiction — applicable to anyone.
