    Episode 48: I'm Coming Home

    Episode 48: I'm Coming Home

    Nate Hartmann, Vice President of Operations at Symetria Recovery, joins host Ty A. Bechel, all the way from Oswego, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago, to discuss his personal and professional journey. Nate, an Illinois native from Naperville, Illinois, struggled with drug and alcohol addiction hindered by debilitating depression as a young adult. His parents were concerned, and after seeing a therapist for his depression, later revealing his alcohol and drug habits, he decided to seek residential treatment recommended by his therapist. Nate credits his decision to go to treatment in 2003 after seeing a television show where the rock-n-roll hall of famer, Ozzy Osbourne's son, Jack Osbourne, decided to seek help for his spat with alcohol and drugs. He lived in a halfway house after his first (and last) stay at a treatment center. He later went on to work at a call center in 2008 for an intervention organization where he helped families and individuals find the resources they needed to find recovery. Fast forward a few years and a Master's Degree later, Nate is helping shape the professional world; he is keeping his roots in mind on how he was treated like a human being and had many of his needs met by his therapist and the admissions team at the residential facility he began his recovery journey at. This remarkable transformation leads him to return to Naperville, Illinois, after an 18-year hiatus with his wife and two children.

    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.
