It was the exact experience I needed to change my life.
I’d just made the decision to stop drinking and Tempest helped me to shift my thinking from stopping something to beginning so many other things in my life.

In their own words
I felt seen and known, and I knew I had found someplace special. It still brings tears to my eyes. I was being held by someone who didn’t treat me like they were the ‘helper’ and I was the ‘helped’, but instead everyone (at Tempest) showed up with a fierce, transparent vulnerability.
Tempest gave me a framework, the tools, and community to finally remove alcohol from my life for good. By removing the thing that was completely numbing me out I was able to step into my own power and own what I wanted out of life.
Tempest didn’t change my relationship with alcohol, it changed my relationship with my entire life. Alcohol used to be my tool for dealing with things, and when I removed that I became a bundle of raw nerves. Tempest helped me relate to my humanity in an entirely new way and because of that my life is bigger and better than I had ever dreamed.
What I learned through Tempest gave me the tools and knowledge that I needed to stop drinking but more importantly, I learned ways to get after my best life. I gained a deep understanding of the myriad complexities of addiction, regardless of the substance or behaviour.
I needed a method of recovery that spoke my language, an approach that equipped me with ways to handle what I knew I was covering up with the alcohol to begin with. Tempest opened my eyes to a new way of living.
I used Tempest while I was in the scary, lonely, infant stages of sobriety. I can say with absolute confidence that it was worth every penny. Tempest is not just about getting sober, it is about changing your WHOLE life for the better.
I’d just made the decision to stop drinking and Tempest helped me to shift my thinking from stopping something to beginning so many other things in my life. It was the exact experience I needed to change my life.
What do you have to lose? You’ll come out stronger, happier, healthier, and more connected to a rad group of people.
Tempest allowed me to rest for the first time since I entered recovery. They built a strong program and it allowed me to stop having to build my own program. After working the Tempest model for a year I felt so empowered and have started my own podcast, Recovery Disco. Without the support from Holly and all the Recovery Coaches, I don’t think I would have found my voice.Valentine, Tempest Member
