Ep.49 - Addiction and Recovery with Angela Pugh

Drinking was never on Angela Pugh's radar— so how did alcohol addiction creep up on her? 

On today’s The Adverse Effect, we look at Angela’s journey as she narrates how alcoholism nearly robbed her of her life and her future. Some bad decisions came at a steep price, which lead to the turning point in her journey towards sobriety.  

Now working in the addiction industry as a Master Coach, Angela uses her wealth of knowledge to help others. As the Co-Founder of Kansas City Recovery, she offers safe and structured sober living environments that embody the principles of a true recovery lifestyle in a safe, clean environment.  

Listen as she offers useful and actionable tips in order to take your own first steps. 


“Even when it’s so discouraging and so overwhelming, you should never stop trying.” — Angela Pugh
