STubNYC ,

Wow

Informative answers to hard questions. Insightful, yet deliberate rebuttals to The Who, What’s and Why questions that often present themselves in this family disease. I have gotten something out of each episode with Dan, Earl, and Dr. Rosenberg. Keep up the great work.

TommyCNYC ,

Chris is a total pro. Excellent interviewer and speaker. Provides personal and professional insight in to the world of addiction and intervention.
