Light of Recovery Podcast #3

Light of Recovery Podcast #3 click here
featuring an interview with 
Ernesto Valdez

The Light of Recovery Podcast is brought to you by the Mountain Star Rehabilitation Foundation in El Paso, Texas. This is the third Light of Recovery Podcast recording and the first to kick of the new year 2017. For podcast #3 we sat down with Ernesto Valdez who graduated from the DWI Drug Court Intervention & Treatment program on December 29, 2016. This podcast explores his recovery story from the beginning and his impact on the recovery community today as a coach and educator. Mr. Montoya also shares the microphone with Mr. Valdez to discuss the DWI Drug Court graduation that concluded the previous year.

In addition, we conclude the podcast with a music recording conducted a couple of years ago at the Aliviane Men's Residential Treatment Center on Socorro Road. The recording was facilitated by Board Secretary and Light of Recovery podcast host Lecroy Rhyanes and features Christopher, Angel, and the two Ricardos. The recording is titled "18 with a Bullet" and is significant since the recording was conducted at a time when Mr. Valdez was beginning treatment. Mr. Valdez was present during the "18 with a Bullet" recording session.

The Light of Recovery Podcast features members of our Recovery community in El Paso, Texas. Our goal is to provide a platform for the Recovery community to be heard and for the message and stories of recovery to be documented. El Paso County, in particular, has an extensive history in its connection to the Recovery movement. This podcast is done in effort to bring those recovery stories to light and engage listeners in a conversation about specific topics that we hope provide people with knowledge and inspiration.

The Light of Recovery Podcast also features music from the local community and from artist, musicians, poets, and other forms of spoken word. If you have music that you would like for us to feature please send us your music audio files or CD to or mailing address 1712 Texas Avenue Suite 10B, El Paso, Texas 79901-1810 ATTN Mountain Star Rehabilitation Foundation. If you're submitting music please consider the theme of our program and our goal to feature stories that are focused on recovery. The Light of Recovery Podcast broadcasts one episode each month towards the end of the month.

Mountain Star Rehabilitation Foundation is a non-profit organization 501(c)3 in El Paso County that provides recovery support for participants and families of the DWI Drug Court Intervention and Treatment Program. The mission of MSRF is to help address the recovery needs of participants and their families. Through our efforts with the Light of Recovery Podcast and other multi/social media projects we aspire to reach anyone and everyone engaged in recovery or interested in learning more.
