What an interesting year 2020 has been. It has been a year with quite a lot of big changes and rules and as a result, many have fallen into worse lifestyles than pre-covid.
And on the other side of the coin, many have used this time to get their health and lives in order.
During this time, each of us has had our own unique journey and own experiences, challenges, and lessons — which we can use to make us stronger, wiser, and more skilled if we choose.
Here’s a quick update on my content and why it’s changing of late…

Why I Took a Break from Blogging
I haven’t written a blog post on this website for around four months.
I became extremely busy with recovery consulting, video publishing, podcast publishing, and doing digital freelance work as well.
I simply didn’t contain the necessary bandwidth to continue blogging during these last four months.
Why I’m Back to Blogging
The main reason I’m back to blogging is that I now have plenty of bandwidth.
I’m blessed with a handful of recovery consulting clients and I’m not taking on more than 3-5 at a time for the foreseeable future.
Also, YouTube blocked me from uploading any new videos for 90 days due to them apparently not liking people posting Kratom videos — even though the video of mine they took down was diligently showing the possible negative consequences of using Kratom (side effects, dependence, addiction, withdrawal, etc.)
It seems that many platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and even YouTube are blocking, demonetizing, and/or canceling any people and channels they feel like and they don’t need to provide a reason or even respond to your emails.
Thus, you won’t see me posting on my YouTube channel or Facebook, or any other social media channel.
The next important reason I’m returning to blogging is I MISS IT!
Writing has been an important part of my life and I’m thrilled to back at it…
Especially since I’ve learned so much more about addiction recovery therapies and ideas in these past several months.
My New Content Upload Schedule
If you haven’t listened to the Elevation Recovery Podcast yet, you might want to at least check it out.
My cohost (Chris Scott) and I broadcast brand new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday.
As for the Opiate Addiction Support Blog, I’ll be publishing new articles every Mon/Wed/Fri at minimum, which means some weeks there might be more but never less than these three.
Other than the podcast and blog, I won’t be on any other content sharing platforms.
I pray that freedom of speech on my own personal websites that I own will be allowed forever.
Unfortunately, I don’t know if I believe this.
It appears to be fine now (at least for people like me who are blogging about addiction recovery).
And while I cannot make YouTube videos on the potential benefits and dangers of controversial herbs for recovery…
Fortunately, I can say just about whatever the fuck I want on my blog and podcast…
At least for now.
P.S. Thanks for reading my letter and I promise to serve you with the best content I can on recovering from opioids and other addictions. And feel warmly welcome to post any comments or questions you may have. I will personally respond to each and every message.
