Understanding Addiction: A Mother's Story

Unfortunately, our insurance would only pay for One Week, which is not enough, right. Westbridge is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the recovery of families and individuals who experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
On this episode of One Hour at a Time, host Mary Woods interviews Sheryl Letzgus McGinnis, a mother who shares her story of understanding addiction and the impact it had on her family. Sheryl's son, Scott, struggled with addiction from a young age and ultimately lost his life to the disease. Through her experience, Sheryl emphasizes the importance of treating addiction as a brain disease and eliminating the shame and guilt that often act as barriers to treatment.
She also shares resources for individuals and families in recovery, including the nonprofit organization Westbridge. In addition to discussing the challenges of coping with grief and loss, Sheryl provides hope for those struggling with addiction and their loved ones. Tune in to this inspiring and informative episode to hear Sheryl's powerful story and learn more about supporting individuals in recovery. Listen to the full episode now here on alcoholfree.com.
