  • In the first half, Anthony Alvarado invites national recovery advocate, Nadine Machkovech, into the studio to shine light on the recent overdose deaths in the Fox Valley, where she explains the importance of breaking the silence and reducing the stigma that surrounds addiction and mental health.
  • In the second half, Nadine sheds tears and opens up about her family struggles with addiction. She tells our audience the importance of reaching out for help, finding connection, support, loving yourself, sharing your story with others, and why hope heals.

“I want to be in the arena. I want to be brave with my life. And when we make the choice to dare greatly, we sign up to get our asses kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time. Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage”

Brene Brown; author of Rising Strong (also referenced in this week’s podcast*).
