Recovery Disco with Valentine Darling- Page Two
Play • 38 min

We continue our discussion with Valentine Darling- a nonbinary, nerodivergent queer in recovery from chronic homelessness, mental health challenges, childhood sexual trauma, self harm, substance use issues, the gender binary, and toxic relationships.

Valentine’s recovery journey started 13 years ago when they began to heal from childhood trauma and abuse. Valentine was able to achieve sobriety using the tools and resources they learned in previous recovery processes. Valentine has found that there is no one specific way to recover and we dive into that more today. There is no perfect one size fits all program. Instead, there are many different programs and communities, all with their strengths and faults. Listen as I discuss this and more in this episode with Valentine Darling. Dedicated in loving memory of Eduardo Acuna Esquivel <3
