Show Notes

Guest: Gloria Englund | M.A Margaret Swift Thompson | M.S

Date: December 3, 2022

In this special BHI episode, I had the great pleasure of discussing the topic of substance use addiction, family systems, and the process of grieving with Gloria Englund and Margaret Swift Thompson.

We went into discussions on how family members may communicate and set boundaries with a loved one who has a substance abuse addiction.

Gloria self-discloses her own experience regarding her son’s addiction and what she learned from that experience. Both Glorian and Margaret explain what they have learned working with individuals with substance abuse and their families.

We also get into the topic of grieving and how it may look different for each individual morning of the loss of a loved one.

It was a tremendous honor having Margaret and Gloria on the show!
