Welcome to the Purpose Chasers ® Podcast I’m your host Mark Crandall. In 2015 I left my career as a therapist to use my drug-addicted criminal past coupled with a traumatic childhood to help 1000s of individuals just like you reinvent themselves. I was tired of dreading my day-to-day life. I was working unfulfilling jobs, wasting time playing video games, binging on tv, just trying to get my mind off of the fact that I had a calling to do more, to be more. For years I wanted to write a book, ...

You could be raised by parents who are very nice people and they may not have any drinking or drug use issues. They could be super religious.

However, they are gradually learning the tools they ne…

When we’ve had trauma in our life, we can get really disconnected from our emotions. We don’t know how to express them or how to use them. Often, we turn to the only thing that we think will work: a substance or behavior that helps us escape or avoid those emotions. However, what if we tried something different? Journaling has grown in popularity o…

Addiction is often the result of pain in our early years of life. Whether it’s passed down through genetics or an attempt to escape the pain, many addicts can point to a hard childhood as the source of their addiction.

Ever seen or heard of people who would come in for addiction treatment over and over again – like they almost always come in for the same problem with the same sense of empowerment?
