The Afflicted & Affected offers podcasts and video webcasts for professionals and individuals in recovery from alcohol, substance abuse and other addictive disorders. The shows highlight the most current and effective treatment methods for addictive illnesses as well as the latest tools available for building a successful long-term recovery



I had the great honor of speaking with Chris Schroeder from The Afflicted & Affected Show.  Like me, Chris recognizes the stigma of addiction and the need for better education, resources and funding to address the addiction epidemic.  My conversation with Chris reminded me of some recurrent themes in recovery. Increase

One, addicts need a safe haven where they can express their truth without judgement.  Two, a multitude of service personnel exist who support the recovery process including, but not limited to, therapists, life coaches, sober companions, addiction counselors, interventionists, etc.  And, last, it often takes great loss or a substantial threat of loss to pierce the veil of denial and incentivize a sufferer to get the help they desparately need.



P.S.  Please mark your calander for November 1 to hear the show!
