From Junkie To Judge
Meet former meth addict-turned-federal judge Mary Beth O’Connor, author of From Junkie to Judge who details her inspiring journey from rock bottom to resilience as she forged a personal path to recovery from trauma and addiction. Mary Beth shares her remarkable three-phase journey: the abuse and trauma that drove her to teenage drug use, the chaos that ensued from her addiction; and how she developed a personalized secular recovery plan that led to 29+ years of sobriety. After attending Berkeley Law, in 2014 she was appointed a federal administrative law judge, which position she held until 2020. She’s a director, secretary, and founding investor for She Recovers Foundation and a director for LifeRing Secular Recovery.
