An Open and Honest discussion about Addiction

Addiction, and reaching out for recovery, is nothing to be ashamed of. So many people are willing to help if you just ask. When, as a young girl, Henriette Ivanans’ first kidney transplant failed, she turned to alcohol and pills. A second transplant, and more struggles with addiction, including two overdoses, followed. Henriette shares with Lori how she came to acknowledge her addiction and how she sought help to overcome it. Listen in to hear her incredible story of recovery, and her search for health and new strategies for how to deal with pain.
