The new health guidelines significantly reduce the number of drinks considered risky — the previous recommendation capped weekly consumption at 15 drinks for men and 10 drinks for women.

Michael Wooten, owner of Effervescent Studios and person in recovery, joins Ty to discuss the past three years since he and his partner were last on the show. As many argue relapse if relapse is, or isn't, part of recovery, today's interview shows the monumental growth that can take place after a brief taste of recovery goes awry when relapse finds its way into our mind, body, and soul. Michael bares all and holds nothing back from the struggles his methamphetamine used caused with his closest relationships. After being asked to leave the home he and his partner began building, Michael was left to reevaluate his life, drug use, and if recovery was something he truly wanted. Realigning his values and desires, he realized a life with organic happiness and supportive people in his life was more important than the stimulants. Today, Michael owns his dance studio, is happily involved with his partner, and is learning peer work with Amare as a Family Recovery Coach Intern.  www.myrecoverypodcast.comwww.facebook.com/recoveryuncensoredwww.twitter.com/recoveryuncens1

Brandon went on to co-star in TV and movies in the MTV Jackass and Viva La BAM series. To his numerous fans, he seemed to have it all. He was getting paid to skate and hang out with his friends, but Brandon Novak's life was crumbling into several pieces off-screen. At age 35, after several years of being an addict, the once-rising celebrity burned out and ultimately hit rock bottom. He was now homeless, begging for money on the streets of Baltimore and living under a bridge. Brandon went to his thirteenth rehab for help with nothing left to lose. More than four years later, Brandon Novak is sober, living in Philadelphia, and has turned his life around. Brandon and Angela Kennecke met at the 2019 DEA 360 Los Angeles Opioid Awareness Youth Summit, where they spoke to 5,000 high school students, telling their individual stories.

No matter our age or background, some of us are just naturally more tense, reactive or prone to unhealthy coping tactics when feeling overwhelmed and it's all about managing the curve balls that come our way. It's important to take care of ourselves as well as help those in our lives who are impacted by mental health challenges, and here our student hosts learn ways to effectively navigate these conversations with friends or loved ones in need.  In addition to a basic education around Depression and related mental health issues, Seattle Children's Dr. Elizabeth McCauley explores practical coping strategies like choosing healthier foods, regulating sleep cycles, routine physical activity and positive socializing. No one is immune to Depression but we can all learn to cope in healthier ways.   Presented by C89.5 in partnership with Seattle Children's, Coping 101 is an ongoing series led by students in Nathan Hale High School's Radio class that destigmatizes mental health from a teen's perspective, made possible with support from Crisis Connections, Carter Subaru, Hansmire Builders and Audian.   Find more Coping 101 episodes, education and a wide array of mental resources online at c895.org/coping101

Countless families have a loved one struggling with both mental health and substance use concerns. Many families struggle to find healthy ways to help their loved one without sacrificing their own health and wellbeing in the process. So, how can families use healthy helping patterns to support their loved one and prioritize their own wellbeing?   Sarah Schwalbach, marriage and family therapist with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, a supporting partner of Mom Enough, brings a wealth of wisdom and practical strategies for families in this situation. She highlights the parallel processes that often occur – for example, a son lying about his substance use and other families in turn lying about why he didn't show up for an important event. Sarah challenges parents to get rid of the idea that “You are only as happy as your least happy child,” urging parents to build community that will help to buffer the effects of your loved one's choices on your own wellbeing. You will welcome the concrete advice Sarah brings about when and how to confront your loved one and how to set clear boundaries for yourself without trying to control that person's behavior. Tune into this important episode of Mom Enough and encourage others you know to do the same.   WHY ARE HEALTHY HELPING PATTERNS SO IMPORTANT WHEN COPING WITH A LOVED ONE'S MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE USE CONCERNS? Sarah Schwalbach offers great tips for “striking while the iron is cool” rather than hot. What does that mean in the context of communicating with a loved one struggling with substance use, and what specific tips did Sarah provide for being most effective in encouraging your loved one to accept help and begin to make healthy choices?   WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE USE? ❉ HOPE FOR FAMILIES FACING ADDICTION: EXPERT ADVICE FROM HAZELDEN BETTY FORD FOUNDATION. Kate Roselle, licensed clinical counselor and national outreach manager for Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's adolescent and young adult continuum of care, joins Mom Enough for a compelling discussion on families facing addiction. She shares tips for effecting change if a loved one is struggling, discusses clinical resources for families, and explores the factors that are associated with the greatest hope of successful treatment and recovery. Roselle says, “The opposite of addiction is connection,” and that informs the work of Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.   ❉ HOW TO COPE WITH A LOVED ONE'S ADDICTION: ONE WRITER'S STORY AND INSIGHTS. Beverly Conyers, author, mother, and grandmother, discusses her daughter's addiction & gives tips for coping with a loved one's addiction.   ❉ PARENTAL ADDICTION: IMPACT ON THE PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP & HOW TO HEAL TOGETHER. Parental addiction has significant effects on children and the parent-child relationship, but there is hope and healing is possible. When a parent is addicted to alcohol or other drugs, their relationships with their children suffer, whatever the ages of the children. Given a chance, school-age children often describe working hard to keep their parent's secret, trying to take care of their parent, and worrying that they can't trust their parent to be there when they need them. Helene Photias of Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's Children's Program and Paula Frisk of St. David's Center for Child & Family Development, join Marti & Erin to discuss keys to helping parents and children move toward healing, build more positive and secure relationships, and create the fun and joy that every child and parent deserves.

As a researcher in the field of psychology and behavior change, Lauren's experiences implementing strategies for change help to set her apart from many coaches and mindset practitioners. She researched, developed, and delivered evidence-informed programs for parents experiencing high stress across a range of contexts, from natural disasters to pandemics, with complex risk factors such as housing difficulties, domestic and family violence, child abuse and neglect, and infant and baby developmental difficulties. Lauren has worked in multiple countries and served as a consultant to the World Health Organization's Department of Mental Health and Substance Use. For eight years, she researched the positive parenting program alongside the program founder and developers and worked at the international head office in Australia. This parenting program is used in more than 25 countries, including the US, and has the world's largest evidence base. It is number one on the United Nations' ranking of parenting programs, based on the extent of its evidence base. Working directly with parents in the positive psychology program, Lauren honed her coaching process. Yet it was Lauren's own personal battle with burnout years ago that fuels her passion for helping individuals identify their core values and goals and live intentionally today. She has developed a coaching program informed by social, behavioral, and neuroscience research to help people suffering from chronic stress to forge a path to greater fulfillment. After years of publishing and speaking on expert panels, she's now bringing her collected learnings directly to you, through her consultancy services and coaching courses. Originally from South Carolina, Lauren loves taking nature walks with friends and listening to podcasts about the science behind human behavior. She highly recommends ice bath and sauna sessions to reduce inflammation and get a quick boost of positive energy.
