In this episode, Zach & Kevin are joined by Marge Lucas from West Michigan Wellness Group. Marge is a social worker and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor with decades of experience working with families in the area of addictions. We talk about how an addiction doesn’t impact only the addict themselves, but the entire family - as well as answer a question about what a parent should do if they suspect substance abuse in one of their children.
