¡Get Smart! with Erin Moore: What Are You Worth? The Real Cost Of Addiction Treatment

RMA-Episode 31 Show Notes:


This week on a special episode of Get Smart with Erin Moore, we continue our discussion of the dark underbelly of the recovery industry. Erin has some first-hand experience with body brokers and other shady rehab practices and she shares her story with us. What happens when you take an industry designed to help people get back on their feet, and inject the potential to make massive profits off addicts? Hint: nothing good.


Plus, Mike puts the final touches on his vacation preparations and Nat keeps shedding the pounds. When should you remain anonymous and when should you burn the ships?


We also read a positive review, and engage in the usual nonsense; the weekly round-up, Recovery in the News, (Should you let your kids have alcohol?), and the Week in Weird, (Don’t drive your motorcycle around UFOs), on a high-traffic, profit-driven, only somewhat anonymous episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
