AN AWARD-WINNING MEDIA GROUP DEDICATED TO ADDICTION, RECOVERY, 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".
Personal stories of addiction and recovery touch us the most and have the greatest potential to educate and heal.
In the first of our new series of personal stories on long term recovery, a friend-of-the-pod shares his raw, insightful, and honest journey from addiction to long term recovery.
We cherry pick the memoirs, self-help books, academic tomes and everything in between to bring you the best books on addiction and mental health.
We've interviewed hundreds of specialists and people in recovery from across the country to create over 50 hours (and counting) 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."
- Dr. Michael Bierer, Asst. Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Physician at MGH, Professor at HarvardX "The Opioid Crisis in America"
We've worked with a lot of people in this field. Here are links to some of the ones whose work we admire.
