Welcome to the 53rd episode of the Give A Heck Podcast!
Join Dwight Heck and his guest, Angie Manson, as they talk about tying addiction recovery to exercise.
From low-income housing to the CEO of Elevate Addiction Services, Angie has been through a whirlwind of character-building moments.
But amid her darkest days, a compassionate judge who sentenced her to treatment opened her eyes to helping others—her true purpose.
So now, Angie runs the only drug rehab center with a CrossFit gym and hosts the Elevate Experience Podcast, sharing a genuine “behind the scene” perspective on the road to recovery.
In this episode, you’ll learn about:
● How addiction is a learned behaviour, often stemming from childhood upbringing.
● The value of vulnerability when helping other people get past their trauma and level up.
● Why acceptance is essential when taking the first step to recovery.
● The impact of our associations in life and how to protect ourselves to protect others.
● How community has helped many addicts and alcoholics in their journey to recovery.
● And much more!
