Resilience and Addiction: A Discussion with Dr. Cody Heath on Recover Everything

Families are amazing in the way that they can adapt. It's really uncomfortable, it's painful, but they don't recognize, like how strong those patterns are and how difficult they are to get out of and heal from.

He emphasizes that addiction is one of the few things that can affect families for the long run, until it becomes the family's functioning. In other words, the more a family enables addiction, the harder it becomes to break free from those patterns.
Dr. Heath also talks about the importance of family support and how it can contribute to resilience, particularly for sexual minorities. He emphasizes that if someone has more family involvement when they come out, they are more likely to be resilient. Dr. Heath also highlights the role of therapy in addiction recovery and how it can help people manage their world.
