Tough Love Doesn’t Fix Addiction

The struggle for families dealing with a child or partner suffering from substance use disorder can be frustrating and overwhelming. Dave Jansa tried everything to help his son, Kevin. Nothing worked until he found SMART Recovery. Jansa has served as a peer addiction management coach, a peer loved one coach, director of partner relations, national trainer and most recently the Face It TOGETHER program advisor. Melissa Flynn found help and hope for her son, Nicholas, through SMART Recovery and Face It TOGETHER, before his overdose death in 2018. Melissa and Dan join Angela Kennecke to talk about better ways to interact with loved ones dealing with addictive behavior.
