Ep001: Stephen Kavalkovich – The Rescuer Who Needed The Rescue

Click here for Episode 001 of Rescue the Rescuer


Stephen tells his story, from childhood trauma to how he became the rescuer who needed the rescue.

His personal reflections about Ground Zero on 9/11 is impactful and powerful. He reveals how many First Responders coped that day…and how that experience seemed to spark his addiction, fueling his struggle and epic fall to his “bottom.”

As with most addicts, the tale is at times nearly unbelievable, until…the pain it takes to finally address the underlying causes and conditions. Which ultimately leads to healing.

Listen to this story of challenge, failure, hope, and inspiration.
