Full Potential, Now! Addiction Podcast, Episode 22 – Luis Rodriguez – Native American Recovery (Bonus Episode)
Over the last two episodes, we’ve been telling the story of tattoo pioneer and former gang member Freddy Negrete. Along the way, we enlisted the help of author Steve Jones, as well as acclaimed poet and Freddy’s former gang rival Luis Rodriguez.
In today’s special bonus episode of Full Potential, Now!, we shift our focus to Luis Rodriguez, hitting rock bottom, and climbing back through the Native American recovery method.
If you haven’t listened to our 2-part interview with Freddy Negrete, you can find it here.
