So you just got sober but are feeling stagnant. You’re wondering how to deal with some of the new information you’ve just discovered about yourself but you're unsure how best to do that. You’re not alone.
Truth be told, getting sober is just the tip of the iceberg. Often we need to keep working on ourselves and that can mean looking for outside resources to do it. There’s a lot of different ways to get sober but that path may not help you deal with things like trauma, anxiety or depression. Good news. If you can learn how to deal with life without drinking, you can learn how to deal with everything else that ails you as well. This is what Courtney is finding out as she moves into other programs that help her continue her journey of self-development. A lot is required to heal!
Courtney joins us to share her warstory this week and we’re honored to share it with you. Early on she was taught that your insides didn’t matter, as long as you kept up appearances and surprisingly, Courtney was able to do that for a long time even as her addiction continued to progress into harder, more deadly drugs, putting her in danger at every turn. Hear how she was finally able to turn it around and how life is for her today in recovery.
Thank you Courtney for your beautiful story! We’re excited to follow your journey!
