recovery in your ear

We care and we have been there!

The Life on Life’s Terms Podcast was started in 2017 by Chris Mandeville and Tom Robinson. We are both in long-term recovery from substance use. The way we see it is, those of us who have recovered need to come forward and speak the truth about how it was how we recovered and how we live our lives now. This work is too important not to do. We need everybody’s help against this enemy because it’s taking our people every day. We do this for free just to try to help. We have goals and dreams to expand to other areas of the battle against this deadly disease of the mind body and spirit!
