Guest Speaker Series: Jennie Ketcham
Former “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew” participant and Pasadena Recovery Center alum, Jennie Ketcham, returned to PRC to speak to the current residents about her experience with addiction on Wednesday, August 8, 2012. Ketcham, a former adult film star who went by the name Penny Flame, spoke about her inspiring transformation from porn star to the hostess, student, blogger and author that she is today.
In a brief interview, Jennie credits PRC’s role in her recovery:
“Pasadena Recovery Center was like ground zero for my experience in recovery and for the new life that I get to live today… it’s like the core of my earth”
Additionally, she sings the praises of PRC counselor Shelly Sprague:
“She had such solid boundaries and was really established in her sobriety and knew who she was and could identify herself very solidly in her program and that really helped me”
