In this video, Ester Nicholson, Founder and Author of Soul Recovery - 12 Keys to Healing Dependence and Trusted Advisor for SHE RECOVERS Foundation, opens up about entering addiction treatment and, 35 years later as a recovery speaker, frequently being the only Black person in the room. From these experiences, Ester shares how to heal from racial trauma and biases and offers a positive outlook on the change that is beginning to happen in the field.
