Landmark Recovery Podcast is the premier podcast discussing addiction, recovery, and sobriety. We talk with experts to dispel myths about what addiction is and isn’t. We hear from recovering addicts who share their stories of rock bottom, rehab, and relapse. We also tackle difficult topics like trauma, the chaos of active addiction, and how it affects our families and communities. But our favorite topic? Hope. The podcast is a production of Landmark Recovery, a rapidly growing network of local drug and alcohol rehab centers providing high quality, and affordable, clinical treatment. With the mission to unlock human potential, Landmark is committed to helping individuals live beyond their addiction.
