Lisa Boucher is an expert in recognizing the early symptoms of Alcoholism. She will guide your listeners on what to look for and how to help themselves.
Lisa is also the award-winning author of Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture. It's the book that some are calling, "The Big Book" for women, but men have found help as well.
From personal experience Lisa can discuss why she quit drinking at an early age, and how doing so changed the whole trajectory of her life. Listeners will glean a new perspective to help them change their lives, too.
Lisa also works in healthcare and has found a huge disconnect in the medical community regarding alcoholism: Most doctors know little about addiction so they throw antipsychotics and antidepressants at people. But as a nurse, Lisa sees the same individuals come back to the hospital over and over again, their lives spiraling out of control.
Also, lest we forget, there are children on the backside, many who end up in addiction themselves because they are traumatized by their parent's behavior. Affluent families, though all looks well on the outside, are gravely impacted by the drinking culture, as well.
Everyone wants to talk about opiates, but alcohol is still the most widely abused drug, and most all addictions start with alcohol.
Most people who talk about addiction don't have a 360 perspective regarding addiction like Lisa does. They are familiar with 1 aspect and claim to be experts.
