Grieving Out Loud with Angela Kennecke

Childhood Trauma and Addiction

Jon Sommervold grew up with high-achieving, affluent parents, but that didn’t protect him from becoming a victim of sexual abuse. He turned to alcohol at a young age to cope with trauma and eventually developed a $1,000 a day cocaine habit. Yet, Jon excelled in school and went on to be successful in the finance world. Still, his life was a mess and he failed to find true recovery after entering treatment multiple times. Today, Jon runs a recovery center and sober living homes called Tallgrass. He’s sharing his remarkable journey on this episode of Grieving Out Loud.
