Devin Frizado has quite a story to tell. This mother and wife from Fall River was addicted to alcohol, and her addiction was so serious, she found herself in Boston Medical Center, paralyzed on her entire left side.

Now, three years in recovery, Frizado is looking to help other women facing some of the same problems she faced. Working with Steppingstone Inc. in Fall River, she is starting her own peer-to-peer group, reaching out to other mothers in recovery.

Devin visited Townsquare Sunday this week and shared her remarkable story of recovery.  You can hear it here.
