DRINK/DRUG ADDICTION IN THE FAMILY. GAVIN SHARPE ON RIVIERA RADIO, MAY 2022

Is addiction a choice? Is addiction curable? How do you help a loved one who has a problem with drink and/or drugs?  Should you ever tell the kids about a parent’s addiction?  Should you force someone to rehab?  What is recovery?  Must every recovering addict relapse?

Listen to Gavin Sharpe’s May appearance on 106.5FM Riviera Radio. Hear Gavin answer listeners questions live on air and describe the impact that addiction has on the whole family.

Listen to Gavin discuss when a drink becomes something more than a healthy tipple and becomes addictive, how family members come together to unconsciously hide the addict’s problem and why addictions go hand-in-hand with other mental health disorders.
