Corey recently released "Freedom," a short film in collaboration with L.A. CADA, where he used poetry, dance and nature to detail his story with addiction and sobriety. When speaking with Huffpost, Corey said, "I wanted to share my story in a way that was authentic to who I was and who I am now. ... Creating art has not only been a passion of mine but it's been extremely therapeutic in my journey with sobriety." Corey launched a podcast, Life According To Corey, where he will dive deep into topics such as addiction, relationships, mental health and have many different celebrity guests join him as well.

Corey joins EDGE to share his perspective on the power of community and how he's harnessed the power of social media to share his message with the world. Joining Corey in conversation is Recovery Unplugged's alumni coordinator, Zach Elliott, who will share what makes the drug and alcohol treatment center so successful and welcoming for the LGBTQ+ community and how alumni maintain a sense of community to stay sober.
