EPISODE 70: Part 3 – A Path to Recovery: Nowhere to Go But Up with Sean Dustin

This episode is part 2 of a three-part series with my guest Sean Dustin.

His story is one of struggle, drugs, alcoholism, recovery, hope and the power it took to turn his life around. I was moved to tears multiple times throughout the course of this interview, and I know you will be too. 

Sean is an addict on his own path of recovery. He was addicted to meth for 18 years, and quit in 2010. He picked up an addiction to painkillers for 7 years after that. He spent 3 years in prison as a result of his addiction. Now, Sean is a father, a union tradesman, a cultivator, and a podcaster.
