#50: Is Love All You Need To Crumble Your Loved One's Addiction?

What’s a family’s role to a loved one who’s dealing with addiction? Chris and Lisa discussed the family’s involvement in healing from addiction. Making the phone call can make a big, significant change, especially since 90% of people with addiction don’t get help for it as it’s a general thinking for others to help them once that person hits rock bottom. They also discussed the misconceptions about addiction, treatments, and going to rehabs. There’s always an intervention: love as the first method is a much better route than the threat of jail time.
