Addiction affects people of all shapes and sizes. Skin tones and geographic locations. Ages, personalities, and genders. Today, meet two people who are committed to sobriety, and the Chief Clinical Officer at a treatment facility.
This won’t be the last time you hear stories from people in recovery on this show, so if you’d like to tell me your story about what the sober life has been like for you - whether you’re a few days into it, or it’s been decades, whether you’ve stopped using alcohol or meth, heroin or weed, or another drug, tell us your story: CWolf@ctpublic.org.
