Hadley just finished her freshman year at the College of Charleston and her friend Jill just finished her freshman year at Temple University. I spent a little time talking about what is it like being away at college and how drinking affects them .
What is the drinking on campus/college culture?
What’s it like having a parent in recovery? Has it opened her eyes to others with addiction? Has it made her more aware of her own social behavior? Does she feel there is a stigma associated with having a parent that is a current or recovering addict? How has it changed her outlook on life (i.e. I can do anything I set my mind to, I am more understanding and empathetic towards others, I am so lucky to have a sober/present parent, etc)
