The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Each September is the observance of National Recovery Month. The journey to recovery after substance abuse looks different for everyone and it’s important to find spaces and communities that can support you along the way. Joining us today to chat about what the recovery journey might look like throughout the lifespan is Kristen Feemster, LMFT. Kristen and I chatted about what kinds of things you should pay attention to in your relationship with alcohol to indicate whether there may be a concern, the importance of recovery options that are culturally responsive, and how we can support friends and loved ones in their recovery.
