Episode 56 Tribe Rejects and the Homelessness culture in Utah

Standard
Occasionally we need to ground ourselves and talk on a bit more serious level. We haven’t done that really since the election season.

For episode 56  Aaron Bryant sat down with us for a chat about his past, Salt Lake City’s homeless community and his own personal experiences with that “tribe,” and his new job with Inspiro Recovery. Aaron has taken a job as the clinical director for the upcoming recovery center, Inspiro Recovery, which will be opening in mid-July.

Inspiro Recovery is taking a different approach than other recovery/rehab centers in Utah by focusing on peer recovery services. We think that it will be a great addition to our state which is reported to have one of the highest rates of opioid addiction among other addictions.

We have talked a lot about the homeless epidemic in Utah over the last few months because of the rapid increase. Aaron was able to give us a very unique perspective on addiction and Utah’s homeless situation. He shared with us his own story of addiction and recovery. From the lowest low to now carrying two master’s degrees. Aaron is in long term recovery and is the author of the memoir, Synchronous Memoir of Addiction and Recovery, which illustrates his journey in recovery, and his passion to support individuals in making positive life transformations. His book is still available!

 

If you know someone that is in need or you yourself are in need of the services of Inspiro Recovery, please reach out to 888-I-GOT-HOPE.

Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Jeremy

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

The New Utah Podcast recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary! Episode 52 we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving!

Jeremy didn’t hesitate in offering up Utah’s ghost towns as the one thing that people should do when visiting Utah. There are plenty to explore. Some in ruins and some still standing. With a list of over 50 they span the entire state! You can take a day trip or make a weekend of it!

Utah’s One Thing: New Utah Host, Chris

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

The New Utah Podcast celebrated our 1 year anniversary recently. During episode 52 we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving! Chris said that someone visiting Utah should head to The Chocolate. They have two locations, one in Orem and one in West Jordan.

Chris was very specific that you must visit the West Jordan location. He also said that you need to try skiing and/or snowboarding, cause Utah!

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

The New Utah Podcast celebrated our 1 year anniversary recently. In Episode 52 ,we each thought we should do our “one thing” someone visiting Utah should do before leaving!

Bre had a hard time coming up with her one thing. After a little poking and prodding, she came up with the perfect one thing! While someone is visiting Utah, Bre said they must make it to a Real Salt Lake game! This is perfect because Bre and Chris spend their soccer season cheering and supporting Utah’s own MLS team, win or lose.

So if you believe, just stand up on your feet… we’re here for RSL!

Utah’s One Thing: Melinda Meservy of Thyme and Place

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Of course we get a lot of the same answers on the one thing that people should do in Utah before leaving, because yes, we are known for Temple Square, our National Parks, and the mountains. When Melinda of Thyme and Place joined us for our year end episode 52, she brought to the table that someone visiting Utah needs to try some High West Whiskey! We couldn’t agree more. If you get a chance head up to the distillery, but if not you can get it at most, if not all, local restaurants and bars that serve alcohol! She did also throw in there to head south as well, but we know that is a given!

Utah’s One Thing: Alan Scott of WaterPocket Distillery

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Episode 51 Alan Scott, of the brand new and shiny Waterpocket Distillery, told us that the one thing that people should do when visiting Utah is to head to Capitol Reef to his business name sake, the Waterpocket Fold.  He described it as a “miracle at your finger tips,” and “world class landscape.” And if you are short on time Alan did suggest heading up Little Cottonwood Canyon!
