Trust God, Clean the Garage, and Help Others Women In Recovery our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety". Char came to Hurricane several weeks ago to host the Been There Done That Show www.beentheredonethatshow.com. The topic for the show was to discuss the VOA Homeless Outreach Program in SLC, which Char heads up. Marsha brought Char out to her womens sober living home to show off the house which is due to open August 1, 2013. The problem the Home and the Garage was in need of some cleaning out. There was a vast amount of STUFF left over from the previous owner, it was over whelming just to look at. Well Char in all of her wisdom said, "Marsha you do not have to do this by yourself. How about I do what I can to come back down with some women from SLC and help you clean this place out." I just about fell over, it was just what I needed I said, "Asking for Help is a part of what we learn to do to stay sober. I guess it can apply to needing help with projects that are overwhelming also. I am so thankful for the help that is coming my way." As a treat I thought it would be great to have the show topic on 6-29-13 be about how we use service work to support our sobriety. The women how show up for the service project are our Host on the Been There Done That show.

Many people think that recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is a lost cause when in reality there are approximately 25-40 million people who consider themselves to be in active, stable long-term recovery. Based on those numbers, most people probably interact with someone in recovery on a daily basis, but they don't even know it because it's not talked about openly. Dr. Kelly and the Recovery Research Institute's mission is change that stigma and show people, through science, that recovery is not only possible, but it is the likely outcome.
On this episode we will talk to Dr. Kelly about addiction, stigma and recovery and how understanding the neuroscience of addiction will help alleviate that stigma.
