Beautiful You with Special Guest Kaz Harrison
The journey of addiction with a loved one takes surrounding yourself with people going through a similar thing to you. 🎧💥Be Inspired...Be Encouraged💥🎧 My Beautiful YOU guest this week is Kaz Harrison. Kaz lives in Whyalla, a mining town in South Australia. She found herself sitting on her red couch, in her shop encouraging and supporting women who came into her shop whose children were struggling with drug addiction. She had a secret though. Her daughter was also a drug addict, but she was so embarrassed she didn’t tell them at the time. When her own health started to suffer badly from stress and anxiety, she visited her doctor who gave her the number of a mental health nurse. Reaching out to the nurse was a catalyst for transformational change not just for Kaz but since then, for many families on the same journey with a loved one’s addiction. The support group RIPPLES was formed and along came the women she had listened to and encouraged on her red couch. They were all surprised to find they had a common need and the support group has blossomed and grown since its inception a few years ago. From experience Kaz has found that reaching out to someone who is going through the same thing as you will offers you support, advice and information to help on a journey with a loved one’s addiction. Don't do the journey alone reach out and find support. Here are some of the contacts Kaz mentions in the podcast.
