1080 1080 Dr Rozina Lakhani

Do you know a loved one who struggles with addiction?

When a loved one is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, it can be particularly difficult for you to confront them. It is very helpful to create a support system for them, making them feel safe, giving them reliable information sources, and giving them people to talk to to help them start over.

Do you want to know practical tools that could help you to support your loved ones?

In this program, our guest, Bobby Newman explains how a family can help loved ones with alcohol and drug addiction. 

Bobby Newman  shared that after going from a strong, moral upbringing in Southern Oklahoma to a drug-related downfall that had him facing federal prison, he understands what those who are addicted feel and think. That’s what enables him to cut through the resistance and manipulative tactics of an addicted person and help them choose life and recovery.

So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview:

“It’s drugs if you are going to combat. The people that love you the most, that you know that are in your corner. When something bad happens to you and they’re your first phone call and you’re going to fault them for trying to keep you from making that more bad decisions, then that’s drugs talk. That’s drug addiction talk. Again, addicts don’t typically don’t want to lose that relationship. They do deep down care about their family regardless of what they’re acting like and doing. They do care about their family and most of the time. ”
– Bobby Newman

“Most addicts don’t want to live the way they’re living. They actually do want to change.”
– Bobby Newman 

“Sometimes family members are just afraid of seeing all the signs, but they are afraid of calling it addiction or just kind of calling somebody for help. They feel like, you know, that may somehow make it real or somehow it retains the person’s name or the family’s name.”

– Dr. Rozina
