Recovery Collective

Join Tom Leu on the Recovery Collective podcast and community where he brings together and connects a collective of creatives, experts, advocates, movers and shiFters who DARE to get up, stand up, and get down to the business at hand… which is to lend a helping hand to those still struggling (with self-defeating behaviors of many varieties) by letting your voice be heard… as we, together… talk shiFt™ about RECOVERY in its many forms, and most importantly… share insights and SOLUTIONS to overcome and rise above what Tom calls the AV/DC’s >> the Addictions, Vices, Devices, Distractions, or Compulsions that may ail you or someone you know.

“I believe that if we’re being honest, (and long term sobriety cannot exist without it), we all are in “recovery” from some thing(s). For me, alcohol was my definitive drug of choice, although I used almost all of them in various quantities, at various points, for nearly 20 years. December 17, 2002 is my continuous recovery/sobriety date, one day at a time.” – @tomleu

What guests are saying about Tom Leu and Recovery Collective:

“I’ve been on what some have referred to as a “podcast/radio tour” as of late to promote my memoir so I know podcasts and radio shows.  Tom is infinitely prepared, professional, smart and friendly.  He has a terrific sense of humor, enjoys what he does, really delves into the projects/backgrounds of his guests and all of these culminate in a terrific interview that goes deep but also includes laughter. As a guest, you feel safe in his hands as he guides you through a conversation with questions that are personally tailored to your story/project. I was incredibly impressed by his little soundbite of my recent interview on his IG post. Maybe I’m easy but Tom has a life long fan and guest in me.”

Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie-A Memoir of Getting Dirty and Staying Clean

“It was such a pleasure being a guest on the Recovery_Collective Radio Show. Tom Leu has an incredible skill as a radio host in being able to create an easy flow of conversation for both the listeners and guest speakers to enjoy. The questions asked during the show make for a purposeful discussion and I believe that the listeners are able to take away something of value from each discussion. I had the honor of meeting Tom before this radio experience and it is obvious of how passionate he is about helping others in life and in recovery. I would highly recommend the Recovery_Collective radio show for anyone who is looking to add value to their lives.” 

– Austin Cooper, Founder of Sober Evolution

“If the Recovery Collective were merely a platform for a range of recovery stories, that would be enough. Under Tom Leu’s passionate, skillful direction it’s more like a next-level Master Class in solution-focused living. Tom’s an expert on recovery who remains curious and engaged, with a passion for the topic that’s infectious and inspiring. My story has multiple (seemingly) disparate threads. Tom sees the bigger picture without losing its finer details. His casual approach and insightful questions made for a stimulating bank-and-forth, with a sense of authentic attunement. Some radio interviewers have an interrogation-style approach, whereas being on the Recovery Collective felt like co-creative brainstorming. Our interview was, for me, both fun and profoundly stirring. The result is a show that is powerful and polished. Raw, real and intimate, yet educative and instructive.” 

Kristin Casey, Author of Rock Monster: My Life with Joe Walsh

“Recovery Collective is simply amazing! Tom Leu breaks the stigma around addiction, and the misperceptions around sobriety and recovery. Tom is always well-prepared, has a great knowledge base, and is always curious to learn more. Tom doesn’t conduct interviews, but rather has conversations with guests about the silence and stigma surrounding suicide, mental illness, addiction and recovery. As an addiction counselor and licensed clinical social worker for the past 26 years with 10 addiction counselors working for me, Recovery Collective has been an amazing resource for us and our clients. Tom brings a message of hope, healing and fun to recovery from addiction of all types.” 

– Kevin Polky, Founder and Executive Director of KP Counseling and Shatter Our Silence

‘Tom is an insightful and passionate host. I love the topics and guests he has on the show. Tom does his research on his guests! He asks the most intriguing questions I’ve ever been asked by a host. It’s apparent he knew about my work and I truly appreciated that. Tom’s passion is infectious. It’s an absolute pleasure to know Tom Leu and to be able to share the mic with one of the best recovery warriors there is.” 

– Lara Frazier, Writer and Speaker at

“I recently was on the Recovery Collective show and WOW, my friend Tom’s energy and demeanor are contagious! He really cares about his guest, his subject matter and more importantly YOU, the one who is still suffering. Tom talks abut his mission, which to help those to overcome and rise above the AV/DC’s: the Addictions, Vices, Devices, Distractions, or Compulsions that may ail you or someone you know. In short, Tom’s enthusiasm and attitude will have you listening again and again. I am so fortunate to call him my friend.”

– Stewart Michaelson, Founder of Join The Nation Network
