Episode 140: Loving Someone Through Addiction with Jane Macky

I met Jane Macky professionally through the Innovation to Impact project through Yale. When I heard her story I knew she had to be on the podcast.  That’s why episode 140 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about loving someone through addiction! 

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, Jane and I are sharing the importance of learning how to communicate with your loved ones who are going through addiction and a deeper understanding of a little-known method called the CRAFT method. 

Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:

  • Jane’s personal story of loving someone through their addiction, and why she’s decided to dedicate her life to helping others love their partners through addiction.
  • What the CRAFT acronym is and why it’s important to understand the steps associated
  • CRAFT teaches family members how to identify their loved one’s triggers, break patterns, develop communication, and more
  • The 7 Elements for Positive Communication that Jane mentioned from the CRAFT method

Jane truly believes as a society if we learn to not only identify but talk about addiction in a loving and understanding way, through the use of the CRAFT method and love, addiction as a whole would be more difficult to go unnoticed and unhelped. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
