Session 81: What’s Your Relationship to Substances?

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

For this week’s episode, we’re helping you explore your relationship with substances. For this conversation I was joined by Dr. Delishia Pittman. Dr. Pittman and I discussed how you can tell if your use of substances has become more than recreational, the steps you can take to get help if you think you might be struggling, how some of our cultural practices may be contributing to masking issues with substance abuse, and how to help if you think a friend may be struggling with their substance use.
