Barbara Conord, LPC – Addiction: A Mother’s Story of Heartbreak & Resilience

Bernadette welcomes her sister Barbara Conord, a licensed professional counselor who knows first-hand the pain and struggle associated with a loved one’s addiction.  Barbara says, “The grief and pain of addiction are every bit as overwhelming and devastating as they feel. In our own pain, we will want to say horrible things that we don’t really mean, we will want to quit, we will want to self-protect. Instead, we need to learn to make decisions based on our values and not our feelings. It is possible for our lives to have joy even if our loved one does not find freedom from addiction.”
