Addiction and Recovery- Interventions, Meditation and Yoga

Show #158

Robert Martin and Alana Brewton join me this morning to discuss substance abuse, addiction, recovery and interventions. Bob used to be the Director of Substance Abuse for a large hospital in Charlotte, NC, and Alanna worked with Bob as a substance abuse counselor. Zach Fandl, my intern from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte joins us as well.

Bob discussed the variety of illegal drugs that are in vogue right now, along with the process of interventions. The intervention scenario is most informative, and Bob paints a picture in words of a intervention scenario.  Alanna’s passion is working with individuals who suffer from an addiction and assisting them in recovery with yoga and meditation. Alanna says that recovery from addiction takes a mind, body and spiritual approach, which is why yoga and meditation are so effective in the recovery process.

This program is interesting and educational for anyone who is battling an addiction, for those who have a loved one and are seeking help, and for all who have an interest in learning more about addiction, recovery and interventions.

I hope that this edition of Radio 4 the Ages is beneficial in your life, and thanks for being a part of my journey!
