You're Breaking Stigma Just By Being YOU. 💫

Happy Friday,

This weeks newsletter is dedicated to YOU. The community, the recovered, those recovering, and those making a difference. By staying sober another day, we continue to break the stigma of the drug epidemic going on in the country. This week we were able to celebrate that and highlight some of the major things going on in our community.

Are you doing something awesome in the community? Email me here.
1. The "Sober-Curious" Movement Is Taking Off in New York City

From a "dry-hipster bar" to sober karaoke hangouts, these spots have caused quite a stir in metropolitan nightlife. I have a feeling we're going to start seeing a lot more of this in the near future.

Is the "Sober-Curious" movement coming to a city near you? Check it out, here.
2. Narcan Is Now In Vending Machines In Las Vegas

We've heard of buying soda and snacks out of vending machines, but now Narcan?

Last month, the Trac-b Needle Exchange program launched their impact exchange - a harm reduction program that offers free naloxone kits. While other tools like clean needles and pregnancy tests are also in the machine, this new concept has saved the lives of hundreds of Las Vegas residents.

Find out where the machines are, here.
3. From Cop To Counselor with Frank Kallstrom

Frank and Stephen go way back to their law enforcement days as students. What was once a dream of becoming an officer, Frank later became a drug and alcohol counselor. Even though Frank never had a problem with drugs and alcohol, everything turns out exactly as it's supposed to be as he joins us on this week's podcast episode.

4. The Family Disease

Michael Herbert is a therapist, and person in long-term recovery a friend of Sober Nation. Michael has literally helped thousands of families, loved ones, and people struggling with addiction and helped them get back on their feet. In this intense interview, Michael tells us what families of those struggling NEED to hear as opposed to what they want to hear.
