Addressing Trauma Related Substance Abuse in Families
May 21, 2020
Hosted by Robin LaCross
What do you do when a family member is abusing drugs or alcohol? What about when they are lying and stealing from you? How do you protect yourself? Do you standby and watch as they spiral towards rock bottom? Is there anything can you do or say that will get through to them? How do you cope when you dread every phone call fearing the worst? Robin’s special guest, Jennifer Maneely shares her story of the sheltered daughter who goes off to college and down a slippery slope into drug addiction. In the years since getting her life back together, she’s been helping families develop strategies to help loved ones caught up in addiction and trauma related substance abuse. She shares what her family did that made the biggest difference for her as she struggled to find her way back to sobriety. She offers words of wisdom drawn from her own gut-wrenching journey through addiction to families desperate to get their teen and adult children into treatment.

Robin believes that by changing the way parents talk to their kids about sex we can reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of STDs in the world. To this end, Robin founded the HPV Education Project to raise awareness about the virus and the problems it causes. She also created a pair of online interview series called the Raising Empowered Daughters Summit and the Raising Empowered Kids Interview Series where she interviewed over 40 experts on a wide variety of topics designed to empower parents to communicate freely with their children about growing up, sex, relationships and staying safe.
Robin helps parents prepare for these challenging conversations by offering online training programs, private coaching and through her weekly radio show, Holistic Sex Ed Radio.
