Choice Theory in Recovery

In this episode, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Ben Eberhart, a man I met when he took Choice Theory training during the early stages of his recovery. Ben has moved on from the job he had when I met him to create a beautiful life for himself. He is a well-known local professional musician and family man. Ben is married with two young daughters at home and has found a career he truly loves as the Community Outreach for Arkview Recovery Center, a program he can really get behind. Join me to hear about this great place that helps people overcome their addiction and hear some of the wisdom Ben has accumulated over the years and how he credits AA, showing up, doing the work and Choice Theory as instrumental in his recovery. If you are struggling with an addiction or are a professional in the field who would like to check out Arkview, call 717-500-1111.
