Your Prodigal Child Doesn't Have to Ruin Your Life

What does it mean to live well and fully? To see rebirth in your child's struggle with addiction and to feel that recovery for yourself as a parent? That's exactly what our guest, Barbara Decker, shares with us on today's episode. Barbara shares her own story about her son Eric's battle with addiction. Desperate for help, she pleaded with a behavioral therapist to assist her son. What he told her completely changed how she approached her son’s addiction: “There’s nothing you can do that will help your son. Only he can choose recovery.” After this realization, Barbara began looking inward and working to improve herself. While this seemed counterproductive at first, she discovered that these changes in her own life created a positive change in Eric's as well. Barbara is now proud to say that Eric has now been sober for almost five years with no relapses. Now Barbara wants to break down her process and explain why a prodigal child doesn't have to affect a parent's life in a negative way, but rather can be an opportunity for self growth that leaves lasting results for them and their family.
