We are a podcast dedicated to sobriety and recovery from alcohol and drugs. (And whatever other addiction that is out there) It doesn't matter what you have been through in the past. We have all done very bad things in our addiction. This does not define who you are. We know there is a way out of addiction. Family and loved ones, you play a part in this as well. There are plenty of stories out there of families and loved ones not knowing what to do with their addicted loved one. Let Ben and I guide you on the right things to do and the right decisions to make to ensure that you and your loved one gets the help that they need.

310 - THREE QUESTIONS to ask a treatment center before committing to go
In this episode I discuss with you three questions that I would suggest asking ANY treatment center before committing to going there. Often times treatment centers will make their website look a certain sort of way to attract for clients only to find out when you get there, it is nothing like it was presented. DO NOT BE FOOLED! Not all treatment centers are created equal! If you have any questions you can reach out at Tom@realrecoverytalk.com and Ben@realrecoverytalk.com
