    Lacey joins us in the Big Z Media Studio to discuss going from telling on herself at a house party to hiding her cocaine and heroin use from her family and friends.

She lived a relatively quiet and safe childhood and after her cocaine love affair, she stumbled upon heroin and her life became a lot less quiet and a bit more dramatic. She never gave up, found recovery, and now is giving back to those that are in the shoes she was once in. Join us to hear a remarkable story of perseverance, hope, and redemption.

    Recovery Uncensored Ep 27: Let's Talk About Sex (W/ HBO True Blood's Brianne Davis)

    Episode 27 is unlike any other episode we have produced. During this episode, we shift gears into discussing sex and love addiction with Hollywood actress (True Blood, Prom Night, Jarhead), Brianne Davis, that is in recovery from sex and love addiction. We talk about recovery from sex and love addiction in Hollywood, why the movie The Notebook is off limits for those in recovery from sex and love addiction, and her new book Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict. Brianne leaves nothing on the table during this shocking, revealing, and sex-y episode that will leave the listeners questioning their sex and love life and raising awareness of a much-needed topic that affects millions of people globally.

Inspiring, honest and uplifting

I absolutely admire those who are brave enough to choose recovery and speak up about their addiction story. As a human who has addiction myself, Ty’s Podcast has helped me to realize my own triggers and see the truth about my addiction through listening to the stories of others. Being new to recovery, listening to the stories of others has been very helpful for me to understand that there is community in recovery. I enjoy the topics discussed outside of the realm of addiction as well. Life gets busy and when I need inspiration or a meeting but can’t make one, I am able to listen to this podcast and it reminds me of why I am in recovery. It is certainly not a replacement for working my program but it does help if time just won’t allow me to get to a meeting. Thanks so much for doing this series and I am looking forward to hearing more about recovery for years to come!

Realest form of speaking one’s truth!

I have been working with Ty Bechel the host for years. He is a true example of what a true community leader looks like and gives an Avenue to all around him to speak their truth. I highly recommend Recovery Uncensored in order to get a glimpse of real people in real recovery!
