Episode 38

Meet Heidi, a recovering alcoholic, a good friend and a fellow counselor.

I love doing school-based work. One of the reasons I love it so much is my relationship with the counselors. Today, I want to introduce you to Heidi. I have had the privilege of working with her for a number of years and I’m thrilled she agreed to be interviewed. In this episode we’ll  hear about her journey from being a classroom teacher to becoming a counselor and her path to recovery.

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

Professionals who work with alcoholics share a common purpose with Alcoholics Anonymous: to help the alcoholic stop drinking and lead a healthy, productive life. We can serve as a source of personal experience with alcoholism as an ongoing support system for the recovering alcoholic.
