How Can Families Truly Understand the Nature of Alcoholism and Addiction?

Addiction is not a disease

with Tommy Rosen

On this episode of In the Circle, I go deep into the intricate web of family dynamics and the often misunderstood concept of addiction. With Lynn bringing forth a compelling inquiry about helping families grasp the true nature of alcoholism, it’s important to remember that addiction is not an isolated issue, but something that families experience together.

This conversation shines a light on the profound revelation that addiction originates from trauma and is deeply rooted in codependency. I believe that while addiction might be a universal human experience, the journey to recovery is not. Many belief systems can keep us trapped in the cycle of addiction. Yet, when families embark on the recovery journey together, the results are extraordinary.

In the midst of a mental health crisis, remember that no one has to walk the path to healing alone. Find solace, understanding, and a community that resonates with your journey. There’s always a way forward. Stay connected, ask for help, and believe that breakthroughs can, and do, exist.

There is nothing more powerful than a family that recovers together
