RARE INTERVIEW! Jennifer was that loved one, and she tells the story from both sides. She had a gut-wrenching addiction, and she now helps families know what to do. Powerful interview!
Heart-wrenching, heart-warming story of how my guest, Jennifer Maneely, found her way back from addiction to success in every way, on every level! Be inspired by her story, and her willingness to share her journey.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EPISODE:
- Jennifer's story of being lost in addiction
- How Jennifer found her way back to sobriety
- What family can do that's helpful to an addicted family member
- What families unwittingly do, thinking it helps an addicted person
- How Jennifer Maneely's learning to set boundaries helped end addiction
- Other ways to deal with the pain, shame, and guilt that leads to depression and addiction
You may have an addicted family member, and you so want to help. Learn what is actually helpful. Also, though, learn what may be well-meaning, but is actually unhelpful and alienating! Who knew? But hearing it from someone who can tell you how the addicted person hears your well-meaning--though perhaps misguided--words can be eye-opening. That's what this conversation will do!
And, share it with folks who are addicted and who have addicted family members, too. That could be just what could make all the difference and create a breakthrough for them!
