Addiction Talk Details


Irene Rollins is a pastor, certified emotional health coach, recovery activist and the author of “Reframe Your Shame: Experience Freedom from What Holds You Back.”

As a pastor, mother and wife, Irene looked like she had it all: a successful church that she led with her husband, Jimmy, and three amazing children. After not drinking for more than a decade, Irene introduced alcohol back into her life and quickly fell into the grips of addiction.

Irene never believed she drank problematically and believed that she only drank to alleviate her stress, but she became increasingly dependent on the substance. Turmoil within her marriage and family followed until a close circle of friends and family intervened and she accepted help.

It was during treatment that Irene began to address the root causes of her drinking and understand that the unresolved childhood trauma that she never attended to affected her greater than she imagined.

Today, Irene has been sober for a number of years and leads a ministry with her husband called Two Equals One.
