From Darkness to Life

30-11-2023 • 1 hr 9 mins

In this episode, Ryan talks to Janice, a Licensed Master Social Worker from Alabama, who shares her inspiring story of recovery from addiction and trauma. Janice reveals how she overcame her past struggles and found her passion for helping others heal their wounds.

She also discusses her focus on helping recovering individuals repair their relationships with family and friends, and offers some practical tips and resources for anyone who wants to improve this area of their journey.

In addition, Janice opens up about how she did almost as much damage to her relationships in early recovery as she did in active addiction, and how she learned to forgive herself and others.

Janice also announces her upcoming book, which will be released in 2024. You can find more information at www.janicejohnsondowd.com.
