“Let’s Talk Addiction and Recovery” Podcast Focuses on What Kids Need to Understand About Addiction

Hazelden Betty Ford’s latest “Let’s Talk Addiction and Recovery” podcast will be of interest for sports production professionals who might want to learn more about how children experience the trauma of parental addiction. Often, for example, they can blame themselves for what’s happening. But caregivers and educators can help kids understand the truth: addiction is an illness that isn’t caused by anything a child has done or not done.

Jerry Moe discusses how addiction impacts children on the latest podcast from Hazelden Betty Ford.

Listen in as host William C. Moyers asks children’s therapist Jerry Moe about his work with Sesame Street in Communities to create developmentally appropriate messaging and resources to help kids everywhere who are impacted by parental addiction. Click here to listen or read the transcript.
