A father’s story of addiction, love, transformation, and peace

Today’s guest, Dean Dauphinais has to two sons. His oldest son suffered from depression that ended up manifesting itself into a heroin addiction. Fortunately, his son managed to embrace his recovery and is now over 800 days clean and sober.  While the story could end there, this is only the beginning. Dean and his wife have applied many of the lesson is this experience to strengthen their relationship, to embrace sobriety in their life, to use it as a educational reference for their other son’s life, and share the inspirations and insights of their journey to support other parents going through similar challenges.  There are great nuggets in this podcast and I am grateful for Dean’s time, his authenticity, and his wisdom.
