Episode 14: Conversation with Guy Felicella
This week's Unashamed Alcoholic guest is harm reduction advocate and inspirational speaker, Guy Felicella.
Guy grew up in a middle class home in Richmond but fell into addiction at a young age. He spent 30 years in the repeated cycle of gangs, addiction, treatment and jail and nearly 20 years residing in the two block radius in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, using many resources, including harm reduction, to keep himself alive.
Today, Guy is using his experience to change hearts and minds on the idea that recovery is harm reduction and harm reduction is recovery.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Guy.
