Recovery Advocates Lisa Smith and Tawny Lara Launch Recovery Rocks Podcast

New podcast is an inclusive discussion for anyone recovering or
curious about recovery

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A rock and roll-loving Gen X lawyer in 12-step recovery from addiction
to alcohol and drugs. An equally rock-obsessed millennial writer who
found addiction recovery through blogging. Give them a couple
microphones and you get the Recovery Rocks podcast, a new kind of
discussion about the issues impacting those who struggle and recover,
reflecting different perspectives, but finding much in common.

The new weekly podcast is the brainchild of Lisa
Smith
, author of the acclaimed memoir, GIRL
WALKS OUT OF A BAR
, and Tawny
Lara
, founder of popular recovery blog, SobrieTea
Party
, and sober event series, Readings
on Recovery
. Their podcast, Recovery Rocks, will discuss
recovery from substance use disorder, mental health challenges, and all
types of trauma. The project’s primary goal is inclusivity. Although
Lisa’s and Tawny’s experience speaks most directly to substance abuse
and mental health disorders, everything is on the table. Recovery
Rocks
will be a forum to discuss the issues we all face, and we want
to hear from listeners on what they face as well.

Episode topics will include:

  • To 12-step or not to 12-step?
  • How recovery changes our relationships
  • Navigating a sober social life
  • Finding allies in recovery
  • The ups and downs of social media
  • Handling transfer addictions

The podcast may be found on major platforms:
