Podcast #70 — Recovery Capital and Laurie’s Journey to a New Vocation – Advocate and Peer Recovery Specialist

CUFA cover 70

(25 min) Allies Founder & Director, Dominique Simon-Levine, interviews Laurie MacDougall, Allies collaborator and creator of REST educational groups. Dominique was especially interested in what pushed Laurie to leave her former occupation and begin focusing on the work she does today: educating, advocating for, and supporting families affected by Substance Use Disorder.  Laurie describes various life circumstances that came together and sparked change, including her discovery of the Allies in Recovery website. She talks about what was in her head when she created REST and how the momentum brought her to where she is today.
