Continuing with the ‘framily’ theme we’ve had going with this month, I’m going to talk about the way that ‘it’ applies to recovery and mental health struggles.


None of the stuff I was able to do would’ve been possible at all without the support of my family; I wouldn’t be where I am right now. My parents supported me in my arrest, helped pay for my lawyer, supported me during the trial, came to see me in jail, helped me financially after I got out of jail, and then helped pay for my schooling. Through that support, I was able to get where I am today. They seriously had my back through those years.


Family support, all-in-all, is a hugely important factor in recovering and I think it’s underappreciated. So today, I’m going to break down why family (and ‘framily’) is such an important piece to the recovery equation by taking a look at the three factors that I think it affects the most: biology, psychology, and environment.


Topics Discussed:

[:41] About today’s episode.

[4:30] The importance of ‘framily’ support in recovery and why it really matters.

[5:16] Breaking down ‘framily,’ starting by taking a look at how it affects biology.

[10:18] Breaking down the second piece that ‘framily’ affects the most: psychology.

[14:57] Why the environment you grew up in matters; breaking down the third factor that ‘framily’ affects the most.

[17:59] Why this topic is particularly important with regard to recovery.

[19:05] Here’s the great thing about all this: we get to make a choice about changing these things, and this is what we can do to change it.

[20:40] Please share this episode with somebody that you know is struggling and needs to understand why that’s happening.
