In this episode of the Landmark Recovery Podcast, we’re honored to welcome Lisa Woititz, a mental health and addiction expert, and the daughter of Janet Woititz, an early leader in the Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) movement. Lisa has extensive experience in the mental health, addiction, and criminal justice fields, and is the author of “Unwelcome Inheritance,” a book that delves into the generational patterns of addiction and addictive behaviors.
Join us as Lisa shares her unique perspective on growing up around the pioneers of the ACOA movement, including her mother, and discusses the importance of understanding and healing the wounds associated with growing up in an addictive family system. We also explore the potential influence of both “nature and nurture” in intergenerational addicted family systems, and how individuals can break the cycle to lead healthier, more balanced lives.
