About Addiction and the Family

Addiction and the Family


What We Are Doing

Addiction and the Family is a podcast by and for family members of anyone with an addiction. We are working to bring experience, strength, and realistic hope so that you and your family can find recovery together. We do this through interviews with family members, people in recovery, and professionals who work with addiction every day. We also bring you research-backed information and practical ideas born of real-life experience.

Who We Are

My name is Casey Arrillaga. I am a social worker and addiction counselor, but just as importantly, I am a family member like so many of you. My wife Kira and I both come from families with addiction, we were in our addictions together for over 10 years, and we have been in recovery together for almost 20 years. We now both work in the recovery field to try to pay forward what was given to us. 

Why Your Support Matters

We started Addiction and the Family because there are relatively few resources for family members. Too many families have been given conflicting messages about what to do when faced with a confusing, frustrating, and sometimes terrifying condition in someone they love. Far too few have been told how to find their own recovery and why this is important. Any support you offer helps us to spread the message of realistic hope to the next family who needs it.

Thank you for your support.
