Tara Rees recalls how years of trauma led her down a dark road of alcohol abuse

In this week’s episode, Casey Scott and Dr. Matt Woolley are joined by TaraRees┬áto tell her story of how she was taken advantage of by a babysitter at five years old, how that experience traumatized her for years after that, and how such a horrifying experience led to Tara developing an eating disorder.

Then she opens up about an unfortunate situation that ended in a miscarriage, the loss of her then-husband after he walked out during a fight, and why she turned to binge drinking alcohol to try and mask the pain.

Tara also talks about how she began to lose who she was after years of drinking and how it began to deteriorate her mental health.

Lastly, she talks about her experience with relapse and how she’s taking her recovery one day at a time.
