Rebecca and her guest speakers talk about issues involving substance abuse, eating disorders, sexual addiction, codependency and other types of addiction and how loved ones of those suffering with these addictions can intervene. Our show will also talk about current issues with newer drugs and social problems that they cause. This would include bath salts, methamphetamine, synthetic marijuana and other such drugs. Your calls and email questions will be entertained at the end of most shows.

The goal of our program is to inform and also to provide concrete suggestions for helping those suffering with and around these addictions.
