Healing Bonds: Relationships in Veterans' Recovery

One of the big things that one of my social workers, Jay, he said was that- shoot, I'm going to mess it up how he said it. He was comforted by the times that his family members were yelling at him about what he was doing, about his drinking, and that was almost a comfort, because that means that they still loved him. The ones that said something, the ones that tried to make you understand those are the ones that you want to keep around.
