    Rising from the Depths: Shauna Vick's Journey to Joy and Sobriety

    In this enlightening episode of "Finding New Waters," we delve into the inspiring journey of Shauna Vick, who shares her powerful story of overcoming alcohol use disorder, societal pressures, and finding a renewed sense of purpose through helping others. Hosted by Graham Durgie, CEO of New Waters Recovery, and co-hosted by B. Reeves, Director of Business Development, and Justin McClendon, Executive Director, this conversation sheds light on the challenges and triumphs of achieving long-term recovery.

    Shauna Vick, a woman in long-term recovery, bravely opens up about her battle with alcohol use disorder, workaholism, and the so-called "Wonder Woman Syndrome." After decades of sobriety, Shauna faced a devastating relapse that led her to re-evaluate her life and career. Moving away from a successful stint as a software sales executive, she founded "Return to Joy Recovery and Intervention," dedicating her life to aiding others on their path to recovery. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Shauna now enjoys a peaceful life in North Carolina with her family and engages in outdoor activities to connect with nature and maintain her sobriety.



    Key Points Discussed:



    1. **Shauna's Personal Journey:** Shauna shares her intense struggle with alcohol, highlighting the fine line between being sober and relapsing. Her story is a stark reminder of the continuous battle individuals in recovery face, especially when confronted with old behaviors and societal pressures.



    2. **The Pressure of Perfection:** The discussion delves into the "Pinterest Perfect Life" and "Wonder Woman Syndrome," where Shauna details how striving for an unattainable societal image contributed to her alcohol use disorder. The conversation brings to light the unrealistic expectations placed on women, particularly mothers, in today's society.



    3. **Path to Recovery:** Shauna's recount of her path back to sobriety, including the importance of treatment, support systems, and the 12-step program, offers hope and practical advice to others facing similar challenges.



    4. **Return to Joy Recovery and Intervention:** Shauna talks about her decision to leave her corporate career to start her organization, focusing on helping others navigate recovery. She emphasizes the joy and fulfillment found in guiding others towards sobriety and the importance of creating a life that doesn't necessitate escape through substances.



    5. **The Role of Outdoor Activities:** A significant part of Shauna's recovery and current lifestyle involves outdoor activities like gardening, hiking, and spending time by the fire pit. These activities offer her a sense of peace and an avenue to practice mindfulness, contributing to her overall well-being and sobriety.



    **Contact Information:**

    For those inspired by Shauna's story or seeking guidance on their journey to recovery, she can be reached at Return to Joy Recovery and Intervention for support and resources.
