Reclaim YOU: Living with Complex Trauma, Dissociation, and Addiction by Larry Ruhl

As I began to process a childhood with a sexually abusive father and a mentally ill mother, my life unraveled. My quest to navigate life with the burden of a childhood I did not ask for led me to question my sexuality, my purpose, and more. I was terrified, yet compelled to share my story, in hopes of helping others. Through sharing my recovery journey from not only my childhood, but also addiction, dissociation, and complex trauma, I’ve connected with others and allowed them to connect with me. And this connection is life changing.

Reading/Discussion of Breaking the Ruhls: A Memoir

Larry Ruhl will read from and discuss his new memoir Breaking the Ruhls (Central Recovery Press, February 2018), which details his coming to terms with complex childhood trauma: paternal incest and maternal mental illness, which led to depression, addiction, and difficulty accepting his homosexuality. It’s a searing story and a poignant narrative of healing and recovery, one that breaks through many deeply held societal taboos.
