Today I’m joined by two special guests who use their unique platforms to bring attention to both the gravity of the addiction crisis and the profound hope of recovery.
What Happens When You Get Sober And You’re Still A Mess?
Amber had enough. Bedeviled by the throws of addiction, she shares how divine intervention compelled her to do something she would have never imagined – attend a local recovery meeting. Amber describes how one meeting was the beginning of a profound spiritual awakening, and continues to be a guiding force in Amber’s twelve years of continuous sobriety.
Stephanie has spent years of her life struggling with heroin addiction. She overdosed seven times. It’s easy to say she has experienced the current opioid epidemic firsthand. Stephanie describes her struggle, how she overcame it, and what gives her hope for the future of this crisis.
How has the opioid crisis affected law enforcement and emergency responders? What is being done to keep addicts safe from bad treatment centers? I talked with Detective Nicole Lucas to find out.
