Prior Events Snapshot:  The Dis-Ease of Codependency

We had a great turnout for the last family workshop entitled "The Dis-Ease of Codependency" led by Bradford Health’s Jeremy Rakes, MSW. Jeremy discussed the disease of co-dependency and how its affects families.

We have added Jeremy's PowerPoint from the session. Rakes, a recovering addict himself and an Interventionist at Bradford Health Services in Alabama, said in a recent workshop in Tennessee that living with an addict, “is like living with an emotional terrorist.” Source: Crossville Chronicle
