Your Recovered Life: Tim Harrington, Intervention Specialist & Recovery Advocate

‘Tim Harrington is fiercely committed to the world of recovery. He helps people get and stay sober – in whatever way works best for them AND takes daily actions aimed at reducing the shame and stigma of addiction.

The first time I saw Tim in action was at a big conference on addiction treatment. It was during a panel discussion that he raised his hand and asked a simple question.

He referenced how we, who understood addiction and treatment, were all there to learn more…but what about all the people ‘out there’ who weren’t in the know? Especially those whose lives addiction crashed into and who hadn’t a clue about the disease and even LESS about recovery. What if we had a conference for THOSE people?

What an idea!! Right?!?!

I knew I wanted to get to know him better.

So I was happy that when we finally met and I shared this project with him he was totally in. I was looking forward to what he had to share.

I wasn’t disappointed…
