Relapse, Redemption, and Rikers Island
In this compelling second part of Stevie's interview, we dive deeper into her difficult journey to sobriety. Her story takes an extraordinary turn as we learn how her friends became the lifeline she desperately needed, literally saving her life by putting her on a plane to San Antonio's International Convention on July 1st, 2010. As Stevie reflects, "They say we get by with a little help from our friends, my friends literally saved my life."This episode of the Soberoso Podcast goes beyond addiction and blackouts, touching down on the crucial topic of mental health and the stigmas that often surround it. Stevie openly shares the consequences of her last relapse, which led her to a dark place, landing her on Rikers Island among some of the world's toughest inmates, and battling thoughts of ending her own life.After enduring ten challenging months, Stevie's journey took a positive turn as she was transferred to Albion. Inside, she, along with a few other inmates, initiated a 12-step program that remarkably gained traction with over 100 women on a waitlist to join. Stevie's story is a testament to the progressive nature of recovery, and she shares the beauty in this ongoing transformation.
