When you're caught in the spiral of addiction, sometimes a few words from a friend are what you need. Addiction specialist and CEO of Change Inc. Brad Lamm dropped by this episode of Mondays With Marlo to discuss addiction, including his own. Ten years ago, Brad was a bulimic, crystal meth addict, alcoholic, two-pack-a-day smoker and a benzodiazepine addict. And one day, when he was on the verge of taking his own life, he called a friend. His friend's first question was, "Where are you?" She immediately drove over, picked him up and took care of him. Brad credits her quick actions and subsequent thoughtfulness to saving his life.
