Wife of an Alcoholic

By Michelle Lisa Anderson

If you love someone who struggles with alcoholism or substance use disorder, you are not powerless over their addiction. You don’t need to wait for them to get sober to start to feel joy, happiness, and love. Join us for encouragement, hope, and some fun (because recovery doesn’t need to be depressing). If you feel exhausted from trying to help, depressed when they've been drinking or using drugs, and worried this roller coaster ride will never end – we can help. Love Over Addiction is a podcast just for women who may or may not be attending al-anon. This podcast was previously called the “Wife of An Alcoholic” (but we realized not everyone is married and we respect our loved ones and the recovery community and we're committed to no longer use the label "Alcoholic or Addict.")
