Often when we think about addiction, substance dependency, or use we think it can’t happen to us. We demonize the people behind it. We forget that they’re us. They aren’t a they, they are we. We are Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers, Friends, Sons, Daughters, People……



RJ and Earnest have a very emotional discussion about growing up around someone who struggles with alcohol. Earnest is very candid and talks so lovingly about his family. This episode may be triggering to people because of how detailed Earnest gets with the struggles, but one this is for sure, he loves everyone he talks about. Earnest is an author, speaker, advocate, and the host of the Deal to Heal Podcast with Earnest James.
