Chris Howard from ETHOS Recovery knows first-hand the wake of destruction that individuals and families experience as a result of addiction and mental health disorders. Chris grew up in a home with a mentally ill mother and experienced the hardships and challenges that come with caring for someone in a continuously fragile mental state. As a young man, Chris turned to drugs and alcohol at a very young age to help escape his troubles at home. For more than a decade of struggling with addiction, Chris finally was forced to make a change in 2009. Hear his amazing story of not only becoming sober but also how he ended up owning Ethos Recovery / Lifestyle Interventions when he really had no intention of embracing long-term sobriety. He also gives us insight on how a parent can tell if their child is doing drugs. Is there a difference between mental health and addiction? Chris tells what he believes is the difference. He also explains how addiction can make a man struggle with his masculinity.
