Donald McDonald of All Sober and Rich talk about Donald’s years of activism in the addiction/recovery space and how his frustrations with the system have led him to All Sober. Listen as they take a peek under the hood of All Sober set to launch in October. Good stuff happening here!
I am a person thriving in recovery from severe mental & substance use disorders since 2004. I call myself a Recovery Activist because I understand that people experiencing mental & substance use disorders face discriminatory barriers to freedom and wellness – that the Recovery Movement is a social justice movement. I leverage my privilege & recovery status along with my clinical knowledge about substance use disorders, policy advocacy, and systems change to help rural and underserved communities create innovative programs and embrace many pathways of recovery. My background includes being a consumer of services, a provider of clinical services in multiple settings, a health policy advocate, and a Recovery Community leader. Previously, I served as the National Field Director of Faces & Voices of Recovery, the Executive Director of Addiction Professionals of North Carolina, and the Director of Advocacy & Education of Recovery Communities of North Carolina.
Husband, father, grandfather, veteran, musician, and just another bozo on the bus — views are mine.
