Tommy Habetz Embraced Addiction Recovery In The Face Of Loss


As a chef and restaurant owner, Tommy learned his trade working with some of the most recognizable names in the culinary world. His industry is only now coming to terms with its prevalence of alcohol and drug abuse. Sarah speaks with Tommy about grief and learns that much of his healing has come from addressing his own addiction.

Tommy Habetz makes food at Bunk and Pizza Jerk. He loves his mom — and her cooking — and still misses his dad every day.

Grief Gratitude & Greatness is hosted by Sarah Shaoul and is a production of Recursive Delete Audio/Visual in Portland, Oregon.

This episode was produced & edited by Jack Saturn, with additional production by Sarah. The music was by Samantha Jensen.
