Life After Addiction with Melissa Kreutz



Melissa Kreutz

Living an authentic life, recovering from addiction, and having a life that is centered around recovery and self-love is beyond possible for anyone.

In this episode, I’m pleased to have my friend, Melissa Kreutz on the podcast to give you encouragement and inspiration to seek recovery from addiction.

If Melissa can get sober and enjoy life after addiction, anyone can, including you. 

If you’ve felt self-doubt, self-loathing, and gut-wrenching heartache, know that I believe in you. Life can be beautiful if only you keep fighting.
