Addiction & Recovery In The News

Join Toni, Bruce and the Monty’man as they discuss several topics of addiction and recovery in the news. From the incredible rise in heroin overdoses, Game of Thrones heroin, drugs on the Darknet of the World Wide Web to the great news of a recovered Olympiad from Austria, a Face Book friend shares some powerful insight and even the bold move of a DCM from Alcoholics Anonymous on the convention floor. Today’s show is filled with recovery talk at its best, including political correct trivia.

ADDICTION IN HANDCUFFS

Join Monty, Toni and Bruce as they unpack the question, “Should Addicts Go The Jail For Being Addicts?”  Does incarceration within the criminal justice system really solve the addiction problem or is there much more to this than jail can even begin to touch?  And what about when an addict is released from prison and can’t get work and nobody wants him or her around?  Recovery Recording Artist, Jeff Bates closes out our show with his song, “One Second Chance”.

Nasty Meetings (Part One)

Though it is true that people who are spiritually healthy, physically fit and mentally aware are not what make up the bulk of many recovery support meetings, one would think that there are some ethics we should follow when attending these meetings. But what about the nasty meetings? The meetings that are host to those who interrupt, criticize, bash and otherwise suck the life out of the fellowship? Join Toni and Monty for part one of “Nasty Meetings” (How Bad Behavior Undermines Recovery Support Meetings). Closing song: “Oreo Cream Sandwich Cookie Blues” by Michael Brown.
