Addiction, Sobriety, and Everything in Between

Sara is actively on her recovery journey from alcoholism, hitting 60 days of sobriety on the day this episode was recorded. She discusses her motivation to change, how she’s feeling now, and her goals for the future around substances. Laurie has not found herself to have an addiction to drugs, but rather food and people. Instead, she is focusing on how to be a better friend to people who are struggling with substance addiction by changing her social habits that encourage drinking. Here's some data on substance use and some recovery resources: https://www.samhsa.gov/data/data-we-collect/nsduh-national-survey-drug-use-and-healthhttps://westsidecentraloffice.com/online-a-a-meetingshttps://virtual-na.org https://www.smartrecovery.org/community/ You can find Laurie and Sara on Instagram to follow their day to day lives even further @laurieanned and @saraswellnessway.
