Join me for a conversation with Lisa Boucher, author of “Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture.”
Addiction has been a part of Lisa’s story since childhood. Lisa’s mother battled alcoholism and dependence on Valium for decades. Lisa saw herself following the same path when she hit adulthood and was able to stop drinking before hitting a bottom like her mother.
After short stints where she trained polo horses, worked as a flight attendant, hairdresser, and bartender, Lisa Boucher revamped her life and settled in as a registered nurse. For the past 28 years, she has worked with hundreds of women to overcome alcoholism, live better lives and become better parents. She was prompted to write “Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture,” published in June 2017, when she realized after 24 years of working in hospitals, that doctors and traditional health care offer few solutions to women with addiction issues. She lives in Ohio.
