If you love someone who struggles with alcoholism or substance use disorder, you are not powerless over their addiction. You don’t need to wait for them to get sober to start to feel joy, happiness, and love. Join us for encouragement, hope, and some fun (because recovery doesn’t need to be depressing). If you feel exhausted from trying to help, depressed when they've been drinking or using drugs, and worried this roller coaster ride will never end – we can help. Love Over Addiction is a podcast just for women who may or may not be attending al-anon. This podcast was previously called the “Wife of An Alcoholic” (but we realized not everyone is married and we respect our loved ones and the recovery community and we're committed to no longer use the label "Alcoholic or Addict.")

Lifesaving info, low production value

I want to start by saying thank you Michelle for this program, it has helped so much. I appreciate the help you offer for free through your podcast. This has been the catalyst to leaving my husband and beginning my own recovery. I can only give three stars despite my immense gratitude due to the very low production value (dogs barking, alarms going off, sounds like it was recorded on a phone in a bathroom), and the constant commercials for her programs. A 10-15 minute episode will have at least five minutes of talking about her programs and many episodes that seem like it will be focused information on a particular topic turn out to be one long lead up to buying one of her programs. That’s gotten really old; I understand using the episode to advertise but it would be nice if it were kept to maybe a minute long commercial in the middle of the episode. I usually scroll forward way into the episode to get to the part where she finally gets to the point. Anyway, with that said, thank you for this work.

I look forward to every Sunday

Michelle is so inspirational... I look forward to a new pod cast every Sunday. I continue to find myself getting involved and loving alcoholics. I’ve been determined that this would be the last time I would find myself in a relationship that I didn’t put my needs into place. Michelle gives gentle reminders that we are important and we deserve to heal. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Michelle and her amazing staff! Thank you!!!Thank you!!! Thank you!!

Thank you so much Michelle🙏🏼

I found you about a year and a half ago in one of my many dark moments. Listened a little, but didn’t follow through. I knew I’d have to look you up again. I am so thankful to have you lifting me up every step of this torturous journey. Some days I started out strong and determined, today, not so much. The ups and downs come and go, along with a rollercoaster of emotions. Today I force myself to push through.
I absolutely love your podcasts and YouTube videos. They are keeping me afloat. I’m planning to start One of your programs very soon. You are and amazing woman that I aspire to become more like each and every day that passes.
You have greatly impacted my life and are such a blessing in it.
Be blessed always 🙏🏼
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
