[Video] Life Beyond Addiction – Shardae Sharpe

Shardae Sharpe started college at 15 years old. Not having parental control and mental maturity, she began drinking alcohol. Her substance use continued all while she was struggling with school and relationship issues. Her path to recovery didn’t start with SMART, but through her job at Sober Grid, she has learned the program and is now taking the facilitator training course.
