The Other Side of Reality TV: Exploitation or Insight?

Based on my experience, I do not think that these shows depict recovery.
Reality TV has become a cultural phenomenon in recent years, with shows depicting everything from cooking competitions to dating to addiction treatment. In this episode of One Hour at a Time, host Mary Woods delves into the ethical implications of these shows, particularly as they relate to addiction treatment and mental illness. She questions whether these shows truly depict the reality of recovery and explores the potential for exploitation.
Woods emphasizes the importance of professional responsibility and adherence to ethical codes in the field of addiction treatment. She also highlights effective treatment modalities for co-occurring disorders and the importance of ongoing support and engagement in life after treatment. Ultimately, Woods encourages listeners to critically evaluate the media's portrayal of addiction and to advocate for more accurate and sensitive depictions. Listen to the episode now here on to gain insight into this complex issue.
