    A Mother’s Perspective on Addiction

    In this special episode, Ashley Loeb Blassingame sits down with her mother, Hillary Clayson Loeb, to understand a mother’s perspective on addiction. They discuss everything from how Hillary felt when Ashley would disappear, to what it was like attending family therapy sessions,  and why people are so uncomfortable talking about addiction, to how individuals can support family members of those who struggle with SUD. 

    Hillary’s recollection of Ashley’s battle against SUD is intimate, heartbreaking, and honest yet filled with inspiration. This episode beautifully captures the love of a mother for her daughter.
