Welcoming Back Rescue the Rescuer Amid Trying Times
Join Kristin as she welcomes back host Stephen Kavalkovich with his own podcast Rescue the Rescuer here on Mental Health News Radio Network after taking a sabbatical from his podcast. Life has been topsy turvy for nearly everyone, but several life changes have made Stephen’s life more exciting than even most. Hear them discuss how they are managing life amid these difficult times of the pandemic and civil unrest.
Stephen Kavalkovich, host of Rescue the Rescuer and CEO of Rescue Consulting, served as a paramedic for most of his adult life. His most memorable work was at the World Trade Center on 9-11-01. Although his work during this event left a lasting impression on him, his most impactful lessons came from his work as a paramedic in the state of New Jersey. Stephen saw numerous victims of overdose, reviving many of them. He eventually battled his own addiction issues; he lost his certification, career, marriage, and children. Eventually, he was able to overcome his addiction.
Stephen endeavors to open up the conversation about addressing the underlying pain, trauma, and lack of coping skills that makes one decide to self-medicate. Stephen knows first hand that no one is immune to addiction. He shares his story to give others the courage to voice their pain.
