Meet Margaret Swift Thompson
I crawled into recovery in 1997, having run out of options and full of despair. My addicted partner had left me, I was consumed with hurt and anger I denied, while still obsessed with him. I needed others to show me how to focus on myself which, in all honesty, terrified me.
Not only do I have a history of long-term recovery, I enjoyed a rewarding counseling career, spanning decades where I was privileged to work with thousands of people impacted by addiction. I was mentored by incredible professionals in the field of addiction throughout my 20 + years at Hazelden Betty Ford.
And now, in my company Embrace Family Recovery, LLC, I help family members like you develop healthier strategies to cope and even thrive through addiction. You deserve a thinking partner to support you on this path. I am ready to become that partner for you.
