AN AWARD-WINNING MEDIA GROUP DEDICATED TO BROADENING ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

A recent federal study found 60% of high school students said they think cannabis is “safe”, 23% say they’ve used it in the last month, and 6% claim they use it daily.  Jon Cohan reports on the current legal and cultural state of affairs of the drug in "Marijuana and your Teenager: Risky Business".

We've interviewed hundreds of specialists and people in recovery from across the country to create over 80 episodes of award-winning podcasts on addiction, recovery, and mental health.

"The issue of feeling like 'This is my problem alone, for which I am responsible, and for which I am to blame and perhaps not worthy of people's attention or best efforts', that sense of going it alone and being at fault needs our best efforts to counter."
