Dopey: The Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction and Recovery
Anyone who wants to be upset with me about my medication assisted program, feel free, I'm sure.
Dopey podcast is not your typical recovery podcast. Dave and Chris, the hosts of the show, have both been through numerous rehabs, jail time, and overdoses. They don't shy away from discussing the darker aspects of addiction, but they also find humor in their experiences and the absurdity of the world around them. In this episode, they welcome Joe Schrank, a friend of the show and the owner of Remedy Recovery, to discuss medicated assisted treatment and share some of their favorite Chris stories. They also talk to Laurie Dhue, a major network news anchor, about her experiences with addiction and recovery, including the time she did lines before meeting George Bush at the White House.
Throughout the episode, the hosts and guests share personal anecdotes and reflections on addiction and sobriety. They discuss controversial topics like medication-assisted treatment and the role of cannabis in recovery. They reflect on the impact of addiction on relationships and careers, and the importance of support networks and community in recovery.
One of the standout moments of the episode is when Joe Schrank says, "Anyone who wants to be upset with me about my medication assisted program, feel free, I'm sure." This quote embodies the willingness of the hosts and guests to discuss controversial topics and share their opinions, even if they may not be popular.
The Dopey podcast is not for everyone, but for those who are looking for a raw, honest, and thought-provoking exploration of addiction and recovery, it is a must-listen. The hosts and guests bring a unique perspective to the table, and their willingness to share their stories and experiences is both inspiring and entertaining.
