Recovery Resources

Here are trusted tools to stay sober no matter what.

Join the email list for some freebies and weekly coaching emails from me.

Tool #1: Attend a virtual meeting

  • Alcoholics Anonymous: For those, like me, who prefer a 12-step approach, you can find a meeting here.
  • Narcotics Anonymous: Like AA, Narcotics Anonymous has an app to help you find a virtual meeting.
  • In The Rooms online communities: Here, you can join virtual meetings for family members, those in active addiction, those in recovery, and anywhere in between. Start connecting.
  • Refuge Recovery: This recovery approach is influenced by Buddhist philosophy. View online meeting options here.
  • SMART Recovery: Self Management and Recovery Training has over 40 virtual meetings a week. Find one here.
  • SHE RECOVERS + other badass  virtual meetings that support all recovery paths can be found here.

Tool #2: Listen to a meditation

Dwelling on the things that might happen is like pouring gasoline on your anxiety. I know it's hard to live in the present right now, with so much uncertainty and fear, but you need to do so in order to protect your sobriety.

Every time you sit down to listen to a meditation you'll show yourself: you can slow down, breathe, be present, and keep going.

Owning your Truth in Addiction

Together, we stand in honesty and take a good look at the pain; a place of darkness where the only possibility is light. A place where there is nothing else to do with shame and fear but lay them down.

Be your Best Friend

Life after addiction is a tapestry of incredible possibilities, but we need new paths to navigate it - beginning with tools for early sobriety. Come back to this meditation as a tool to re-ground yourself.

The Ritual of Recovery

Elena Brower's words, vulnerability and love are present in every word of this masterpiece, which helped me in my own return from relapse into addiction. For more of Elena's magic, visit elenabrower.com

Remembering Your Worth

The Live Awake podcast is incredibly grounding. At the end of each episode you will be guided through a short meditation on the topic at hand. Check out more of Sarah Blondin's podcast, Live Awake, here.

Tool #3: Coaching Meditations for Difficult Times 10-day series

It's important for me to offer free content, especially in the face of this pandemic. Alongside that, I want to point you to towards a few online courses I created to give directed action plans on maintaining your sobriety in the midst of this insanity. This 10-day audio course will create powerful shifts, so you can face things differently from now own. NOW is when you need your badass-self the most.

Tool #4: Take care of your body

Moving is one of the ways we can stay grounded and in touch with ourselves. It sounds counterintuitive, but exercise will bring you energy.

  • Personal Coach Roberto Rueda: These online workouts—inspired by Crossfit and other disciplines —can be done using items you already have around the house. Try them here.
  • Yoga with Adrienne: Adrienne has over six million followers on YouTube. Her videos are free to watch and suit both beginners and experienced yogis. Under 10 minute videos here.
  • Blogilates: These pilates videos are high energy and are good when you want something quick. (She's also got stretching vids!) Watch here.
  • Free Trials: Take advantage of free trial offers like those at Yoga Works or Sky Ting

Tool #5: Fight off deep cravings

When a deep craving hits, we need immediate steps of action to get ourselves out of that place of anxiety and vulnerability. Download a basic version of the tools I use here.

If your'e looking for a powerful coaching course to help you "ride the wave" of craving, get my $25 audio series that goes deeper on the tools. 

This course gets me, as your virtual coach, in your back-pocket - so when the shit hits the fan, you won't succumb the drug or go back to that thing that keeps you stuck. This series includes a powerful intro, specific to this global pandemic, and how you can use this time to learn to shift and thrive.

Tool #6: My virtual coaching course on getting (or staying) sober while you're at home

This unfiltered course is comprised of 14 lessons and close to 5 hours of video courses that will give you everything you need to start your journey of sobriety (from whatever your toxic behavior or addiction may be) or to elevate and solidify your current sobriety during this difficult time.

Above all: Stay sober, no matter what

Here are a few other miscellaneous resources that you might find valuable during this time. I'll do my best to keep this list up to date with more tools as I learn of them.

  • Watch the free documentary ASK: On love, addiction and codependency. (watch the credits to see my name in there, ha!)
  • SHE RECOVERS - SHE RECOVERS® is an international movement of self-identified women in or seeking recovery. For the time being, they are hosting nightly discussions at 5pm PST. Check out all their online offerings (including virtual support meetings, dance sessions, etc. Women only, please)
  • Russell Brand - You may know Russell Brand as an actor, but his mission to de-stigmatize recovery through his own story has inspired millions. I love him and highly recommend you check out his documentaries here, on youtube.
