EP90 Understanding The Back and Forth of Ambivalence in Recovery with Guest Pam Lanhart

Heather and Pam Lanhart from Thrive Family Recovery Resources dive deep into a topic that's often misunderstood in the world of recovery: ambivalence. It can be one of the most challenging aspects that families face when dealing with a loved one's journey towards change. Ambivalence is complex but often oversimplified and stigmatized which leads to shame, blame, and labeling. Open and honest conversations about ambivalence are crucial in normalizing it within the change process. It’s important to look at our own struggles with ambivalence to help us understand the struggles and the challenges faced by our loved ones.

Some topics covered in this episode include:

  • When your child asks for treatment but doesn’t follow through
  • How to respond to the call that your child wants to leave treatment early
  • What drives the motivation for change
  • Strategies for responding to a return to use
