A podcast that explores the realities and complexities of domestic violence. You will hear real, raw stories from people of all walks of life. Each week, we address hard topics like the connection between addiction and abuse, how violence impacts South Asian communities, learning from domestic homicides, and more. Produced by Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region.
Michael Parkinson, who works for the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council, is an expert on addiction and substance use. In this episode, Michael talks about the connection between addiction and domestic violence, how drugs can be a coping mechanism for survivors, and what we can do to support women in these situations.
