Advocacy and Addiction: How Public Policy Shapes Recovery

It's important for the treatment professional...the more information that you can provide them with, the more informed decision they can make.
In this episode of One Hour AT A Time, Mary Woods discusses the importance of public policy and advocacy for addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery-support with guests Daniel First and Jerry Moe. The conversation highlights the ongoing efforts of addiction-focused organizations in Washington to work together and promote a unified voice. The guests emphasize the need for treatment professionals to provide more information to decision-makers and the general public to make informed decisions about addiction treatment.
The episode also covers the challenges facing veterans returning from the Middle East conflict and the initiatives to ensure equitable and adequate mental health and addiction treatment coverage. Throughout the conversation, the importance of personal stories in advocating for addiction treatment and the need for addiction and substance use disorders to become mainstream in healthcare are emphasized.
