Alexis H Podcast – I’m 100% grateful I’m an addict.
When Alexis went to treatment the first time she decided she was going to prove everyone wrong and not take any suggestions. When that didn’t work the first or second time, she decided to finally take all the suggestions her third time in treatment. Now sober for 4.5 years, Alexis shares how recovery got her through her parents’ divorce, allowed her to experience true joy for the first time and made it possible for her to help other women who are struggling.
Jaime G Podcast – Addiction is about isolation. Recovery is about connection.
Liz sits down with Jaime Gibbons – Cumberland Heights’ Alumni Relations & Volunteer Coordinator – to talk about what 16 years of sobriety looks like and how engaging with friends in recovery kept Jaime clean. Also in this episode: relationships that make you sick, a spiritual awakening while free-falling 30 feet, and Jaime’s greatest triumph in recovery. Hint: It’s a person and he only stands about 2.5 feet tall.
Travis Meadows Podcast – God did for me what I couldn’t do for myself.
Liz talks candidly with “Nashville’s Favorite Underdog” Travis Meadows about losing his brother at a young age, cancer, addiction and his treatment journal that inspired an album. Even with so much success, writing songs for Eric Church, Brothers Osborne and Wynonna Judd, Meadows says his biggest triumph is making it this far in his sobriety journey.

“Every Brilliant Thing” – Alumni Relations March Event
“Every Brilliant Thing” by Duncan Macmillian, with Jonny Donahoe
This one-woman play depicts a daughter who learns as a child that her mother has been hospitalized for doing, as her father puts it, “something stupid.” She resolves to show her mother that life is worth living, by writing a list of 1,000 brilliant things and leaving them on scraps of paper for her mother to find.
Cost: Tickets are $8.00 and include show and post-show discussion panel
“Every Brilliant Thing” offers an unflinching view of chronic depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Far from being sad or tragic, the play approaches the topic with love and sincerity, with hope and even humor. This unique theater experience involves the audience in the story, evoking empathy, tears, laughter, insight and deep compassion.
After the show, a panel featuring Cumberland Heights staff & alumni will discuss the impact of mental illness on the family.
Join Alumni Relations of Cumberland Heights in supporting our very own Nashville Predators! Cost for this event is $25.00 per person and is open to all alumni, families and staff (children under 2 years of age are free but must sit on the lap of the ticket holder).
Seats are located in section 317 Fan Zone. Check out the seating chart below to see where this section is located. All tickets will need to be picked up from the Alumni Relations Department prior to 2/20/19.
