This week on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek was joined by several guests to discuss addiction.
The guests included Tom Ritchie, an AODA supervisor with Libertas Treatment Center in Green Bay and Barbara Coniff, the director of the facility. Coniff is a former reporter at WLUK-TV.
The guests focused on what addiction is, what causes it and how it can be prevented.
Bruce Brodhagen, a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for nearly five years, shared his story of battling addiction.
"I'm a person who likes to be in control and I used to think I could control my drinking," Brodhagen said. "My life had spiraled where all I thought about was drinking and maintaining that habit. I worked at that habit more than anything else in my life. My whole focus of living got to that point. It really affected my health. It affected my family and I didn't like what was happening."
