    Ray Vance: Road Through Hell

    Ray Vance: Road Through Hell

    In the episode:
    In this week's episode, we talk to author Ray Vance, author of A Road Through Hell. Many of us in recovery know about the hell we put ourselves through while in active addiction. We've experienced our lives in chaos, legal problems, broken relationships, relapse after relapse, and defeat. But what do we do when our child has watched us go through all this and decides to follow that road anyway?
    Ray Vance knows because he's been through it. After years of drug and alcohol abuse, a prison sentence, and finally recovery, Ray had to face the fact that his own son was following in his footsteps. In this episode, we learn about Ray's experience with drugs and alcohol, his path to recovery, and what he has done to help his son through a similar lifestyle as we discuss his book A Road Through Hell.

    Pain Management, It's Roll in Addiction with Josh & Hollie

    Pain Management, It's Roll in Addiction with Josh & Hollie

    In the episode:

    We talk to Josh and Hollie, authors of Bang Head Here about the self-destructive behaviors that result from emotional pain. Much of how people are conditioned to deal with pain mirrors the way their caretakers dealt with pain. When a loved one acts out destructively it is easy for the caretaker to place blame on their loved one, instead of reflecting on how their own pain management skills have been passed onto those they love. In order to help those struggling at home survive, it’s important to understand the way pain, fantasy, and avoidance is keeping people in a cycle of destruction.

    Josh and Hollie grew up in neighboring towns in Southern California. After graduating high school they left home for university where they subsequently started a non-profit Kaiizen, developed training programs for teens/young adults on relationship violence prevention, and began crisis intervention coaching for families with at-risk loved ones. Their work inspired a collaboration resulting in the book series Bang Head Here.
