How I Found My Identity as a Veteran in Sobriety
Show Notes

In honor of all the Veterans lost, JR Weaver joins Jamie Brickhouse on Sober Podcast for Memorial Day weekend! JR is an Army Veteran, CEO & Founder of Recovery Revolution, and the Community Affairs Officer at Costa Rica Recovery.  

After leaving active duty from the Army to enroll in college, JR was left with the feeling of losing purpose, identity, and his support system. Feeling hollow and unsure of how to handle it, he turned to drinking. He tried moving to New York switching people, places, and things after having spent 7 years in college with nothing to show for it. 

His battle with alcoholism and addiction left his life spiraling out of control. Coming to a point of isolation, going in and out of jail, and eventually homelessness. While facing hard time in prison and felony charges, drug court gave JR the 2nd chance he needed. After finding recovery from his addiction, JR was able to truly turn his life around and give back to others!
