From Crisis to Clean with June Shannon

Listen to the podcast here:

June, better known as Mama June, is best known for her appearances on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Mama June: From Not to Hot.

One moment she was living in small-town Georgia, and the next, she was sharing every detail about her family life with the world.

What viewers didn't know is that June had been struggling with substance abuse for years.

She justified her habit with being able to work more, earn more money, and garner more success from her TV show.

Her secret was soon revealed when she got arrested in 2019 for possession of crack cocaine.

Eventually, June was ready to get help, and she entered treatment in January of 2020.

Since then, she has made her recovery a top priority.

June has hopes of being able to give back by working at a treatment facility and possibly opening a sober living home.

You can connect with June on Instagram @mamajune and be sure to catch her on the upcoming season of Mama June: From Not to Hot.

2 months, 5 years or 1 day doesn't determine your victory on your recovery. The one day you did get up, decided I'm going to get sober or clean matters as much as 5 years. You got up, decided to fight your disease and try. The will to get back up after succumbing to addiction or a relapse is showing you had to the courage to get up and fight for yourself. Be proud of 1 day, 6 hours and your acceptance in realizing you have an addiction problem. Its hard for anyone to get up and fight anything without sufferung from an addiction. To battle a disease in itself and trying to learn how to manage it and be sober. Takes a lot if willpower and work. I'm an addict myself and been in recovery 10 years now. I believe I had a slip twice in those two years. I chose to get back up and not the disease beat me. Instead learn to control the beast of addiction. I came to terms with the fact I will always be an addict but I'm an addict in recovery. Heads up to anyone battling, you got this, you can do it when you realize you aren't your disease.
