Adriann talks in detail about the psychological and emotional abuse she endured at the hands of her ex and step-father, and how growing up in a strict Mormon community led her to getting married at 16 years old.

Adriann also shares how her current husband’s addiction  impacted their relationship and how she has   learned to support him through his recovery. She also offers practical advice for other spouses who may be supporting their partners through addiction, including the importance of compassion, patience, and support for those who are struggling with addiction.

Her story is a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the importance of speaking out against the horrific crime of sex trafficking. Adriann’s podcast is called Crime Theories podcast where she highlights small cold cases of those often forgotten in society.
