Overview of the Podcast
Thank you for your willingness to share your stories with others. The purpose of this podcast is help families with their loved ones who are battling substance abuse issues. Families do not get the same amount of resources as the ones who are suffering from addiction.
It’s been my goal to start providing these resources so the families have a better understanding of how they can support their loved ones. Your stories are going to help these families understand so they can set boundaries from a loving and supportive place.
Another goal of this podcast is to help people who are suffering with substance abuse issues to have a better understanding of what the families are going through.
We will talk a lot about early recovery. The emotions we deal with, the challenges we face, the struggles we have integrating back into society, and what are some of the things that have helped us the most.
The conversation we will have will be a casual one. I will ask questions around rehab, sober living, community, program, emotions you experienced, your own family experience good and/or bad. What boundaries were helpful, what didn’t work, etc. We will have a few minutes prior to recording to go over anything you don’t want to discuss publicly and mostly just to get comfortable, as well as just getting a general sense of where the conversation will go. I will keep the introduction with your first name only if requested.
You may be asked as a professional to come onto the podcast. The goal will be to share what you have seen among the community of what works, your professional ideas, and different strategies people can use.
If you own a business, we will leave some time to talk more about your business and what you do to help others.
The podcast itself with be about 45 minutes. We will be recording through Riverside FM, the video will be on for us, however, I will only be using the audio. Don't worry, you do not need to download anything. You will get a link, all you have to do is put your name in and follow the prompts that ask to test Mic and Video. Please find a quiet room. Big rooms cause a lot of echo so smaller rooms are preferable.
Please use Chrome as your browser and a computer
Sound quality Tips:
Plug-in Microphones with headset just work better. If you can, use the ones that come with your phone.
Bluetooth is ok
Find a small room if you don't have a headset or microphone.
Also, if you have a picture for the thumbnail you would like to use, please send me one. You may want to stay anonymous with no picture and that’s ok, but letting people see who you are makes it real to them. It helps people to see themselves or their loved ones and helps take away any preconceived notions of what “addicts/alcoholics” look like.
Thank you again for your willingness to share with yourself with the community.
