To simply tell a family member they have no control over the substance use is IRRESPONSIBLE


  1. It’s disempowering. It leads families to believe they’re trapped under the chaos of their loved one’s use.
  2. It’s only a partial truth.  

  It’s not the whole truth.  

  Research in cognitive behavioral science shows that  

  you DO have influence.  

So many families I work with feel like they’re drowning under the chaos of their loved one’s drug or alcohol use, believing there’s absolutely nothing they can do. 


So let me repeat: YOU. DO. HAVE. INFLUENCE.

In fact, you’re influencing your loved one all the time – for better or for worse…

Coming November 2023

This workshop will show you how to have a POSITIVE influence on your loved one’s drug or alcohol use.

It’s the first step families can take to reclaim their lives from the chaos.

The cognitive behavioral science behind influence

Madeleine is just amazing with family members. She is loving, kind and willing to be raw and vulnerable in her work. She clearly gets it. And she has this magical ability to shift seamlessly from knowledgeable facilitator to compassionate friend who is walking the same journey in the trenches of this horrible disease. I wish that I, and my family, had met her when I was still drinking.

That was really informative. I so appreciated your vulnerability in sharing your story, too.


Your presentation really hit close to home today. I really appreciate everything you shared, your understanding and your support.


Thanks for your vulnerability and rawness. It ratifies your advice and makes it super impactful.


Addiction is not a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play.
