#65- What Are Some Surprisingly Honest Benefits Of A Substance Abuse Intervention?
How often do family members deal with a drunk relative during the holidays? Amidst the glitter, the glamor, and the fun of the holidays, it can be frustrating to deal with family members who drink or misuse substances. These situations can be funny or horrific, depending on the outcome, but as a family member, you don’t have to suffer alone. For today’s episode, Chris and Danny talk about the difference between how a family would respond to an accident if it was alcohol or drug induced versus if it’s not. The family would be much more likely to minimize and shake off the incident if it was drug or alcohol related. This is especially true during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. These situations can be a very painful thing for the family to address. Chris and Danny also highlight the importance of having resources and help available during the family’s trying times. They also discussed how families can be affected by these events, and how thankful they are when everyone is safe.
