Finding out that a friend or family member is struggling with addiction can stir up a thousand seemingly unanswerable questions.

In this week's episode I will be talking with Chris O'Connor of Rebound Brooklyn, an abstinence based recovery program in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Chris, a returning guest to the show, will once again draw upon his personal struggles with addiction to help us answer some of the most frequently asked questions from family members and friends about addiction.

Despite coming from a privileged background and loving family, Christopher spent many years in active addition and he has been a resident at numerous treatment centers nationwide.  In active recovery himself, he is intimately aware of the devastating effects of addiction - not only on the person, but also on the entire family system.  

Chris frequently lectures about "The Effects of Addiction On Family Dynamics" in the New England area for the company, Family Healing Strategies.
