Ep.60: Dawn Nickel of She Recovers on The Many Paths To Recovery
Sometimes if you’re lucky someone reaches out to you in the early days when you’re first trying to stop drinking and shows you how to take the first steps. And for me, that person was Dawn Nickel. 8 years ago, when I first thought that I needed to stop drinking and decided to try life without wine, Dawn reached out to me. I was traveling with my son and husband from Seattle to Victoria, British Columbia for a long weekend, my first in 5 years where I wasn’t going to drink, and Dawn picked me up for coffee, drove me to a beautiful beach and we talked all about drinking and not drinking and where I was and what I wanted and what I was afraid of. She’s amazing. And she’s also a pretty big deal. Today on the podcast I was thrilled to interview her and talk about women and the way we recover, from all things and in all ways. I hope you love the conversation as much as I did. Dr. Dawn Nickel is a respected thought leader in the women’s recovery sphere and (along with her daughter Taryn Strong) the founder of SHE RECOVERS Foundation, a not-for-profit grassroots organization that inspires hope, reduces stigma, and empowers women in or seeking recovery for substance use and/or mental health challenges. Dawn is a strong advocate for the view that every woman in or seeking recovery must be supported to find the tools and pathways that will work best for her as an individual.
