Father Tom Weston on Addiction and Recovery
It doesn’t take much for someone to lose his or her way in life, but substance abuse certainly accelerates the process. Addiction is a painful problem that plagues people from all walks of life. No one is immune and that became abundantly clear in talking to Father Tom Weston, a Jesuit priest. The native Californian has been clean and sober for some 40 odd years. He’s spent those years working with people in recovery from Myanmar to Kitty Hawk, N.C. In this week’s podcast, he generously shares not only his personal story, but also important insights on how to live a better, more peaceful life. Father Weston is filled with wisdom. You’ll have to listen to learn what we’re talking about.
