Before Colorado Public Radio’s Vic Vela launched his own podcast about overcoming adversity, he faced a crippling substance use disorder that threatened to end his career, relationships, and even his own life. But Vic found a way out and he’s here to walk us through the journey. We are also joined by clinician Leah Young to show us how finding recovery is attainable for anyone open to professional help. ___ To find more Mental Note Podcast episodes, visit our website: mentalnotepodcast.com Vic’s Back From Broken Podcast can be found here.
