“We Can Come BROKEN From Gambling Addiction Into RECOVERY And Become FREE From This Deadly DISEASE”…
I was so excited to share some of my story and advocacy with Kristin Walker, Host of Mental Health News Radio last month. It was an amazing conversation about gambling addiction, myths, misconceptions, and sharing hope and recovery from this deadly addiction. We need to hear how it is negatively impacting our communities and pulling families apart. So if you or someone you love and care about has a gambling problem? Please take some time to listen and learn we can recover and how you can help them get their lives back! It is the first interview I share my feelings and thoughts about “The Las Vegas Shooting”… My thoughts and prayers are still with all the families who were “touched” by this tragedy.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Catherine Townsend-Lyon is the best-selling Author of her shocking debut Memoir “Addicted To Dimes, Confessions of a Liar and a Cheat. She has fast become well known in the addiction & recovery communities. Her book shares her raw, unedited and haunting past of gambling addiction, living with mental health challenges, a childhood trauma, and abuse survivor, as she helps many in recovery and advocates about these important issues to Shatter Stigma, Raise Awareness, and Educate the public, and those who have been ‘touched’ by the same. Her mission is to spread HOPE to others looking to recover and warn that suicide is not an option or answer for someone with a gambling addiction.
“I’m just a regular woman who wanted to share my personal story about a very big addiction.” NO, I am not rich, famous, or a reality star, I just wanted to share what I’ve been through so others can have more understanding of problem & addicted gambling, and how devastating and cunning this disease is as it devastates your life and how you can recover!”
“Gambling addiction is the hush, hush addiction no one talks about. That now needs to change when 2.9% of our population are problem gamblers thanks to the expansion of Indian casinos and state lotteries in the US. GAMBLING ADDICTION IS currently the highest ‘Suicide Rate’ than any other addiction.”
PSSS…My New E-Book is now released! A new compilation book of REAL STORIES of Addiction and Recovery available on Amazon Kindle!
