How Can We Avoid the Traps and Pitfalls of Addiction Recovery and Betrayal Trauma Healing?

Episode 175 finds Steve and his wife on vacation on the island of Hilo in Hawaii. Hilo is the site of an actual "active" volcano. While there, they observe that there are limited "solid footpaths" around the volcano and a LOT of areas of "thin crust" where the lava is flowing one or two inches below the surface! The surface "looks" solid, but step on it and BAM! you plunge through the crust and into the molten fire!

In this episode, Mark & Steve take the Hilo location and terrain and create an analogy:

—How do we "walk out onto the thin crust" in addiction recovery, betrayal trauma healing and our relationship?

—How do we ignore or refuse to see the "lava-core-issues" under the "thin-crust-symptoms" of addiction and betrayal?

—What do "solid ground" and "experienced guides" look like in healthy recovery and healing?
