Today, Robert Kanter is an international recovery and family advocate. When he talks about addiction, he speaks from experience. At one point, Robert's drug and alcohol use had destroyed his life. After he recovered, he almost lost his daughter to an overdose. Robert talks with Theo about his family's own journey and the work he does now to support other families suffering from addiction.
