In this week's episode, D.J. talks with Allie Haydon, a licensed chemical dependency counselor, licensed marriage and family therapy associate, who works for Palmer Drug Abuse Program(PDAP) in Houston, Texas. Allie shares her story of alcohol and drug abuse recovery and how her experiences led her to helping youth as young as 12 years old in recovery. Allie says some people considered her a "low bottom/high functioning alcholic," but I think she is a gem for the hard work she does for the youth. 

After our interview, Allie and the PDAP family were in one of the worst hurricanes to hit the U.S. Allie reports that everyone is doing well after Hurricane Harvey struck Houston, but donations are appreciated to help youth stay in recovery. You can donate to PDAP directly at http://pdaphouston.org/support/ . Thank you for considering. 

Learn more about Allie Haydon on her website.

Making An Addict is hosted by D.J. Burr, psychotherapist, and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict and the host of the podcast Journey On: Men Healing from Sexual Abuse & Assault.
