Mackenzie Phillips on Recovery & Healing

Mackenzie Phillips on Recovery & Healing
Actress Mackenzie Phillips decided to give up the Hollywood life to follow her passion: helping addicts recover.

She understood the connection between sexual trauma and addiction; unfortunately, all too well based on her own experiences.

Don’t expect to confront your trauma in the first stages of recovery. Handling the symptoms of the trauma enables the trauma itself to be addressed in time.

Not everyone working toward sobriety faces daily struggles. Don’t feel like there’s something wrong with you if you don’t fret in recovery.

Understand that there is a connection between child abuse and addiction. It’s important to empower children. Let them know you have their back.

Listen as Mackenzie Phillips joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to share her journey of recovery and to inspire you to heal after challenging circumstances.
