Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Why Does Denise Do This Radio Show to Support Those Who Love Addicts, Anyway?


After last week’s show on planning for the summer which included a short interview with Denise’s son who is a heroin addict in recovery, Denise received emails with comments and questions. The recurring theme of these questions this time was “Now that we know some of your son’s story, can we hear some of yours? So, this week Denise is interviewed by her friend Diana Price of Diana Price Associates, who has a topic/interview radio show of her own up in Los Angeles, that focuses on business training and Customer Service. Denise asked Diana to do the interview because when they talk, sometimes she has questions about addiction, families, and why Denise is so passionate about helping loved ones of addicts and alcoholics. So, instead of being the one interviewing the guest, this week Denise is the “guest”.

Also, Denise would like you to know that for the first 3 days of July, her book “Sweat: A Practical Plan for Keeping Your Heart Intact While Loving an Addict” will be available at, the kindle version, to download for FREE. Please download the book to read about Denise’s journey, how she coped with addiction in her family, and some of the tools and strategies you can use to, hopefully, regain some peace, serenity, and even joy while loving your addicted loved ones.

During the summer Denise is offering 45 minute FREE phone sessions, also, to allow you to ask her questions, brainstorm about some of the issues you might be dealing with in your family, and to share resources you might need to improve your life.
