5th Anniversary of the Show!
This week Darcy and I sit down to chat...again. This recording was the Voices in Recovery Podcast's 5th anniversary! We talk about Pride, the anti Lgbtq2s hate that seems to be on the rise, death and grief, and some excitement over a potential new location for Freedom’s Path Recovery Society. Thank you for your continued support; for listening and for participating with us - sharing your incredible journies.
A New Path
This week Darcy and I sat down and discussed the past, the present, and how hopeful we are for the possible future of Freedom’s Path Recovery Society. We began in order to meet the needs of humans, who find themselves in distress from a number of human conditions and potentially have fallen through gaps in services. We as a group of humans wanting to help other humans continues to be our main focus and purpose. In order to find our center, we have made some new choices.
This week's guest, Chuck D. Stops by and shares his experience, strength and hope with us. His journey has been one of many ups and downs; from trouble in school to being sent away to boarding school. Moving from boarding school back to public school, his behaviour and using life continued to progress in a steady, downward spiral, causing many changes in locations where the results remained the same, an unmanageable life. Not only is this guy a successful actor, but he's a full blown rocker, I'll leave the rest up to him! Thank you Chuck, we appreciate you.
This week's guest, Peter, stopped by and shared his experience, strength and hope with us. It never ceases to amaze me just how incredible human beings are. You endured, survived and now thrive - thank Creator you are here living such a gifted life and sharing ways of living with others. We appreciate you sir.
Our guest this week, Alyjah stopped by to share their story with us. Alyjah's father was a part of the 60's Scoop and addiction, overdose, & recovery were all a part of their life. They have been in recovery for 9 years and trust me, you're really going to want to listen to this episode. I am not going to say any more about it because hearing it in Alyjah's words will blow your mind! Thank you for your courage, strength and hope.
Lucas & North
This week's guests are Lucas, North, and in the background Ashley. They're film students from SAIT and they came on to pitch their episodic series about addiction. They're looking for support in all manner of ways and of course financial. They seem like really good humans and they have my support. Being able to talk about addiction in a true story format without that sometimes preachy feel, I found the story, "Bus Stop" honest and thoughtful from the perspective of a friend. Thank you folks, we appreciate you.
