Recovery Is Possible

Air Date: September 13, 2018


National Recovery Month is designed to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders, and celebrate the individuals living in recovery. Lorraine Hoover lost her brother, Raymond Rountree, Jr. to an opioid overdose and ever since, she’s been passionate about increasing awareness about addiction and the options for recovery. Matthew Jarvis was Raymond’s friend and he is now himself a Licensed Addictions Counselor. Lorraine and Matthew talk about the devastating effects of substance abuse and mental disorders and the options for recovery on this episode of Living Well with Dr. Peg. We’ll explore how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose, and leadership contribute to effective treatments that give hope for recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders.

Living Well with Dr. Peg is brought to you by SSI Guardian, Thursdays at 1 pm Mountain on KLZ 560 AM (simulcast on KLDC 1220 AM) and online at Encore Broadcast: Sundays at 10:30 am.
