  2. Excellent my friend … here is a great quote … “Your addiction wasn’t your problem. Your addiction was your attempt to solve the problem. In all cases of addiction that I have seen, there’s deep pain that comes out of trauma. The addiction is the person’s unconscious attempt to escape from the pain. " — Gabor Mat

  3. There is a different way to live thank you for your story. After stopping learning how to live and living is a step many people miss and because we forget this important step we go back out some die.

    Thanks again for this video

  4. I am very proud of you Shawn. Thank you for sharing your story on such an influential platform. And I agree that recovery will greatly benefit from a tribe of like minded people. I am excited to be involved! Thank you

  5. If you or someone you know has been affected by the disease of addiction come find online support with people who care. Find us on Facebook @ No Addict Left Behind. Resources may be available.

  6. Great episode. I have a music video here that is creating awareness for drug addiction and overdose. It is called,"Fallen Angel". Just click on to my channel. Thank you for watching.

  7. I completely agree with you Shawn..i feel so alone every day and that makes me want to use. If we had something like this in my area i would jump on the chance to participate. Unfortunatley NA meeting really dont cut it for me. Id be more into a community like you described. Do you know if there is anything like that in Oceanside ca? Thanks! And thank you for what you do. 🙂

  8. Recovery must include mandatory AA and NA meetings. When you lose a loved one to a drug overdose, the only thing that gives you comfort is knowing everything that could have been done to save your loved one was done and if that doesn't include mandatory AA and NA meetings, there ican be no comforting of survivors.

  9. This is wonderful!! Physical activity is something that is not promoted in the recovery community enough!! There need to be more programs like this!
