Scott Smith is an agent, mentor, and supervisor with the Recovering from Religion Hotline Project as well as the co-host of the Recovering from Religion podcast. Scott was raised Southern Baptist and has been identifying as an atheist since 2009.  He is a retired U.S. Army intelligence analyst who served in West Germany, Fort Drum, NY, Haiti, Somalia, Hawaii, Iraq, Washington D.C., and San Antonio, TX where he also resides now.  Prior to that, he attended the University of Kentucky and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Recovering From Religion is intimately familiar with the path of one’s journey in questioning, doubting, and changing one's beliefs. They exist to help others cross this sometimes confusing bridge. Their passion is connecting others with support, resources, community, and most of all, hope. Their Hotline Project offers compassionate agents via phone and chat who will listen and offer support.  Their Secular Therapy Project connects doubters who will offer only evidence-based and non-religious treatment. They also have local support groups that give the opportunity for face to face peer support to explore the impact of religion in one’s life without judgement. Their Hotline can be reached at 1-84-I-DOUBT-IT (844-368-2848).  If you are interested in their therapist project or support groups visit their webpage atwww.recoveringfromreligion.org.
