We all have ideas about what addiction looks like in a person: that the outward appearance should match the inward mental and emotional state, that if you don't look and feel like you've hit rock bottom, that you can't be addicted. That you're just having a little mental trouble. And we apply these ideas not just to others, but to ourselves as well. Mother and son Laura and Tom Boldt join Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler to discuss their story in their book Unraveled: A Mother and Son Story of Addiction and Redemption. They help in understanding addiction and how it manifests in both parents and teenagers. They share so we can better understand what addiction looks like, feels like, and how we can help ourselves and our children through this struggle.
