My guest this week is Terry M. Rubenstein. Among many other achievements (see bio below) Terry is one of the Founding Members of Facing Addiction.
Terry shares her journey with her son’s addiction, how her family had an intervention with him, how important treatment is, and how he’s doing today.
Her loving, no-nonsense advice might just be what you needed to hear. This woman is powerful and making a difference. I’m so excited for you to hear what she has to say!
