Today my guest is Joe Conniff, author of Causes and Conditions: A Life Experience in Addiction and Recovery. He does a TON of service work to help people recover in the Seattle, WA area. Joe shares his story of growing up around addicts, trauma in his teens, his own experience of DUIs, jails, and chronic relapse, as well as his experience of becoming free of addiction. We talked about something he called “The power differential” which speaks to the difference between peer support and professional support and how it affects people in early recovery.
Joe has an amazing story and we cover a lot of recovery resources as well. I really learned a lot from Joe in this conversation and spent the next couple of days thinking how grateful I am that there are people like him in the world. So with that, please enjoy this episode with Joe.
