Today, we’re going to do something a little different. We are inviting some of our professional male colleagues to share on the topic of, “Is it a struggle, a compulsion, or an addiction?”

The root of this topic comes from questions we get most often, “Do I really need a group when he is just struggling?” Or, “My husband refuses to call it an addiction.”

What is underneath this question, is her trying to assess, “What kind of help do I need? He’s only struggling? Or, is the help I need different because he’s addicted?”

Your healing looks very similar whether it is a struggle or an addiction because you are healing from the impact of his behavior, not the severity of his behavior.


We Will be Discussing:

We are so thankful to the following male colleagues for joining our conversation.
