Angela Pugh got sober when she was 33. Being an alcoholic was the best thing that ever happened to her, she says, because it allowed her to find purpose in life and help others.
Angela founded Kansas City Recovery, a full-service addiction and recovery resource that draws upon her years of personal and professional experience in recovery principles. KCR offers a range of services, including intervention services, recovery coaching, and continuing education and workshops.
KCR runs the Sober Living House, where adult men live as a recovering family to build the foundation for a strong and long-lasting sober life.
