Ep 51: How Do I Know if I’m an Alcoholic?
Alison Broderick and Matt Erwin are both in long-term recovery, and they work together at MARR—Alison as the alumni coordinator and Matt as a long-time counselor and now business development representative. But long before they were coworkers, Matt was Alison’s DUI course instructor. At the time, Alison didn’t think she was an alcoholic, but was intrigued with the course material. She stayed in touch with Matt after the class was over. She would reach out to Matt as she continued to have questions about her drinking. They discuss the journey Alison took to accepting her powerlessness over alcohol and the freedom that acceptance eventually brought her. They also talk about the work that Alison does at MARR with our alumni to help them stay connected with recovery.
