People in recovery speak a language that makes a lot of us uncomfortable.
In a culture where we’re told repeatedly to put only our best foot forward and treat emotion like it’s an inconvenience that only serves to get in the way of maximum productivity and efficiency, all of the earnest talk about self-love and Higher Powers and connection can seem downright weird.
Unfortunately, this perception scares many people who need recovery away from the very things that could help them for far too long.
In this episode, host Dan Griffin, Tim Walsh and Michael Dinneen join forces once again to talk about why the opposite of addiction is connection, why recovery culture is nothing to fear, and how everyone — whether they are in recovery or not — can experience more joy, openness, and freedom.
