I sat down recently with Cailey Binkley and Todd Valentine on MARR's podcast: The MARR Experience: Stories of Recovery to chat about a few of my favorite things: meditation/mindfulness, recovery from addiction, and a bit about spirituality and shame. MARR stands for Metro Atlanta Recovery Residence, and is one of the handful of treatment programs that I hold in high regard. They utilize a powerful long-term therapeutic community model of treatment and offer some great resources for the community, like their Loving Someone with Addiction 1-day family education seminar (and their podcast!)
