Sara and I went to high school together in a suburb of NYC called Manalapan. It was one of those seemingly perfect places, which now has a seemingly endless list of alumni who suffer with substance use disorder. Sara told me a story of a long road to recovery, one filled with setbacks and toxic relationships, but ultimately one of inspiration and hope.
This is a raw conversation about drug use, so be ready for that. But also be ready for a woman who is full of guilt over her past, but who really emanates nothing but empathy and compassion for those around her. I am so happy for her and so glad she chose my podcast as one of the first times she has publicly spoken about her past, present, and future.
