When a loved one is caught up in addiction, they suffer. So do we. Terms like "enmeshment," "enabling," and "codependent," sometimes serve to shame and confuse more than to help. 

Beth Gardner is an expert in helping those who have loved ones deep in addiction. As a life Coach, a champion rower, cancer survivor, and research expert, Beth has built up resources and expertise in helping those who support their loved ones. In this episode she talks about addiction, sobriety, trauma, and empathy.
