Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 with Denise Krochta

Denise Krochta grew up on the east coast. She has a BA degree from Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana in foreign languages. After college, her career in international business took her to places around the globe. Traveling, meeting and learning about people and their values and traditions have since been an integral part of her life.

Denise moved into “crisis” mode when she discovered that her teenage son was addicted to prescription drugs along with alcohol and street drugs. She developed a plan for herself to navigate through her son’s addiction that would offer her at least some serenity and peace of mind. This plan is documented in her book “Sweat: A Practical Plan for Keeping Your Heart Intact While Loving an Addict”.
