Late listener

I heard about Dopey back in 2018, but only began listening (from the beginning) somewhere around the time episode 300 came out. I’m a recovering opiate addict and alcoholic, who recently relapsed, very briefly, on alcohol, after 3+ years. Had I not been listening to Dopey like a crazy person, I don’t think I would have had the guts to come clean to my significant other, and get back on track. Dopey pulled me out of it, no doubt. Keep doing your thing, Dave. This thing really helps people. It’s helping me everyday.

Dopest Dope

A friend turned me on to dopey about a year ago and it is one of the few podcast I actually look forward to listening to. I am a recovering addict/alcoholic and love to hear stories from others either still suffering or now recovered. Keep doing what you are doing guys! You rock!

The best recovery podcast out there!

For me, it was always the dopey podcast! Great using stories mixed with serious recovery. Listened on the bus on way to work for years In sobriety.
