Lisa Gennosa and Paul Krauss MA LPC discuss the difficulties of loving someone who has a life-threatening addiction. As a Physician’s Assistant and a mother, Lisa knows this process. Paul has spent over 16 years assisting family members who have a loved one who is addicted. Words cannot explain how important her book is. This story is incredibly open and honest, revealing true anguish. Every phrase expresses a mother’s strong affection to her kid, and it is clear that she wrote it from the bottom of her heart. This book provides hope, which is urgently needed. This interview is for you if you want to learn more.

Lisa Gennosa is a dedicated Physician Assistant, wife and mother who grew up the third child of a liquor and narcotics agent. Her breadth of exposure to healthcare, the legal field and parenting an addict provided the foundation to reveal the things we least like to talk about, but most need to. Her first book is a memoir called “Incurable Hope: A memoir and survival guide for coping with a loved one’s addiction. ”
