Dr. Jane Greer is a marriage and family therapist and is frequently featured on various television shows and in publications, providing expert relationship and family advice. In addition, Dr. Jane shares her knowledge on her own radio shows, including “Doctor On Call,” and her books, the most recent titled, “What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship.”
In this video, Dr. Jane emphasizes the importance of support systems when dealing with a child who is abusing alcohol and other drugs. “You want to build as much support around you with family and friends as you can,” she explains. “And everybody who knows you and loves you …is going to work to keep you on the straight and narrow path.”
