    Episode 6: Recovery Stories w/ Brandon Collins

    We all know our host, Brandon Collins, but do we really? Listen to Brandon’s story of addiction and recovery: we learn about his first drink at 4 years old and when his use became problematic. The path to addiction brought Brandon legal trouble and interpersonal trouble.  We talk about successes and failures, sober college life, the spirit world and always saying yes. However, the path to recovery, through slip ups and emotional struggles, has brought him more wonders than he could have imagined. You can only find out more on this episode of Pack N Recovery.

    “Metaphorically I was killing apart of me…. I had a funeral for myself.” - Brandon
