086 - Joe Difabio
Joe Difabio joins us to talk about hitting rock bottom. He talks about the myriad of reasons why we start down the road of addiction, the decisions that many end up making in order to feed it, and getting to the point where he voluntarily turned himself in to jail. He talks about the emotional and communication skills learned in treatment and how they have translated into marriage and parenting. At Atlanta Detox, (Amatus Recovery Centers) they help individuals find the treatment that works for them, including therapy at all levels of care including using technology like Genesight to help determine which and whether medications can be useful. Enjoy.
