It often takes a number of tries to break free from a gambling problem. Like peeling back the layers of an onion, each time gambling gets out of control, it tells you that something more or different is needed for you to better manage this issue. Often what is needed is a willingness to look a little deeper within yourself and open up.

Hear a powerful and inspiring conversation with an Indigenous man who found his way through the impact of abuse, colonization and the dark days of drinking, drugs and gambling addiction. He shares how finding his voice, trusting his gut and opening up helped him to get to a place where he is standing tall and proud. Listen now and get some hope and guidance for your recovery path.
