The addiction treatment industry is facing complex issues, including insurance utilization, parity enforcement, ethics violations, outcomes research gaps, social stigma, and barriers to access along racial and socio-economic lines. At NAATP, we believe that addiction, or substance use disorder, is a bio-psycho-social-spiritual disease that develops and deepens in isolation. Progress in our field, as with recovery itself, can only be achieved through community. That is why we have created All Ears on Addiction, a monthly podcast series, to promote communication, collaboration, and resource sharing between industry stakeholders. Together, we can advance treatment and save lives. In season one of All Ears on Addiction, NAATP brings you Colors of Recovery. Join co-hosts, Zina Rodriguez and Tania Bhattacharyya, as they explore topics related to mental health, addiction treatment, and recovery as it intersects with diversity, equity, and inclusivity for LGBTQ+ communities and communities of color.
Colors of Recovery - Shari Hampton & Ester Nicholson
In episode five of Colors of Recovery, Zina and Tania have a conversation with Shari Hampton, Anti-Racism Trainer, and Ester Nicholson, Anti-Racism Healer, both trusted advisors with the SHE RECOVERS Foundation. Learn how their complementary training and healing work is a necessary first step in achieving recovery and wellness for both treatment professionals and the patients they serve.
Shari is a Trusted Advisor for SHE RECOVERS Foundation and an anti-racist consultant who works with recovery and treatment organizations to help them explore their own biases and create pathways to greater diversity, equity and inclusion. She is the founder of Served Up Sober, a non-profit organization devoted to increasing healthy equity in marginalized communities by creating holistic spaces for women of color who are sober or sober curious. As a Certified Recovery Coach, Motivational Speaker, and woman in long-term recovery, Shari combines her years of professional and personal experience to offer a spiritually driven and empowered approach to healing.
Ester Nicholson, Founder of Soul Recovery, author of Soul Recovery - 12 Keys to Healing Dependence, and She Recovers coach, turned her incredible journey from addiction to freedom into a practical program that heals the root causes of unworthiness, shame and trauma. Her life-changing program, Soul Recovery - The Roadmap Home, bridges the gap between the 12 Steps of Recovery and universal “spiritual” practices that have assisted thousands in recovering and rediscovering their essential nature of wholeness. Ester's unique approach reveals the spiritual depth and healing power of the 12 steps and removes the stigma of addiction.
