Mom Enough Live: She Recovers. Every Darn Day.

One of the most powerful universal truths is that we are all recovering from something. While it might seem overwhelming to admit we all have a thing (or two) to recover from, accepting that we have something to address in our lives is the first step to healing.  When everyone admits to having a thing, then it’s no big deal to have a thing. For Dawn Nickel, author and co-founder of the SHE RECOVERS® Foundation, recovery from addiction, workaholism, and anxiety led to the creation of a global recovery movement for women. Listen to this insightful conversation with Marti and Erin Erickson of Mom Enough and Dawn Nickel as she shares milestones along her journey, reads passages from her new book, She Recovers Every Day, and offers us insights into how to recover from just about anything. Tune in to this Mom Enough Live episode brought to you by Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.


Tune in to Mom Enough Live Episode 12 for this powerful story of recovery with co-host, Drs. Erin and Marti Erickson, and guest expert, Dawn Nickel. Hear her insights and how she is inspiring others on their paths to recovery.
