Are You Bad or Are You Just Broken?
In this episode of Overcoming Betrayal and Addiction, Dr. Rob and Tami answer questions around cravings and how betrayed partners can progress in a healthy way in their healing journey. Additionally, Rob dives into why someone becomes an addict in the first place. He and Tami note that most addicts are not bad people, they’re just deeply broken people who weren’t able to get their needs met when they were growing up. Many caregivers tried their best but did not give them what they needed to thrive as a healthy child.
