55. Recovering Addict, Author and Public Speaker Timothy McMahan King – The opioid crisis, the path to recovery, and Timothy’s story of going from rock bottom to healing and leading.
Happy Monday! Today, we start off by addressing some missed thoughts regarding last week's episode we just couldn't stop thinking about! Then, we jump in to our interview with Author and Public Speaker, Timothy McMahan King, who tragically became addicted to opioids after being diagnosed with Pancreatitis. Having been told from Doctors they didn't know if he would make it out of his complicated disease, several infections and blood clots later, Tim has now made it his life mission to tell his story, helping others understand the psychology and real-life circumstances that helped him get out of a very serious addiction. Being so close to home (Nat's lost her brother to a prescription drug overdose), we generally feel like this is a MUST listen, lending us the compassion and eye-opening life story of someone dealing with an addiction. If you, or someone you know is dealing with an addition, here are some resources we found useful:https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/substance-use/get-help/get-help-problematic-substance-use.htmlhttp://drughelpline.org/https://drugabuse.com/addiction/drug-abuse-hotlines/
