Share This Post


This week we are highlighting the valuable work of Recovery Coach, Patty Powers. Patty takes us back to her childhood, the effects of alcoholism in her family, her past of addiction, and resilient story of 34 years of sobriety.

Patty helps us to better understand the disease of addiction by explaining what exactly happens in a person’s mind in the midst of cravings, withdrawal, and recovery.

You’ll better understand the cycle of addiction, hear how to support others, set up your own environment and lifestyle, how our culture affects our behavior, and so much more in this brilliant 2-parter with a woman who has made a tremendous difference in this world- Patty Powers.


Part 2 is here to give us an inside look at Patty Powers work as a recovery coach, how to help yourself out in the midst of sobriety, examine our own relationships with alcohol, and learn how to support others in the midst of addiction and recovery. Being alone seems to be the biggest danger in the process of healing and we want you to know that you are not alone.

Tune in to receive endless tips and hear about support groups that can help you and others stop numbing yourself and start living a life that you don’t have to run away from.

3 Gold Stars

  1. It plays the long game. When you hear never and forever in a negative way, know it is just your corruptive thinking trying to get you to cave. Stay vigilant.
  2. Move a muscle to change a thought- take a walk, call a friend, do something to get out of your thinking.
  3. Get yourself two sober people in your life that you can get together with and just be yourself. They need you too.

Piece of Gold

Oh no love you’re not alone, you’re watching yourself, but you’re too unfair. Got your head all tangled up, but if I could only make you care. Oh no love you’re not alone no matter what or who you’ve been, no matter what or where you’ve seen. All the knives seem to lacerate your brain. I’ve had my share, I’ll help you with the pain. You’re not alone.
