Episode Description

Scott Strode will explain how he has built a physically active and supportive sober community in Colorado, where strenuous activities such as mountain climbing and triathlons serve as a vehicle for fellowship that has been missing in the lives of many recovering addicts. Strode, Founder and Exec. Dir. of Phoenix Multisport, works with individuals who discovered the transformative effect that a healthy, active lifestyle can have on long-term sobriety. Strode will be a speaker at the National Conference on Addiction Disorders (NCAD), held Sept. 21-25 in Anaheim, Calif. Also, Addiction Professional editor Gary Enos, will discuss the key topics and speakers to be featured at this year’s gathering of clinical and administrative leaders in the addiction treatment field. The NCAD meeting, sponsored by Addiction Professional publisher Vendome Group, brings together the key players in addiction service delivery, including counselors, clinical managers, nurses, physicians and program CEOs.

Recovery, whether it is from substance abuse or a mental illness, or both requires a treatment plan, which in many cases is as effective as treatments for other chronic illnesses. “One Hour AT A Time” will increase awareness about recovery and decrease the discrimination against individuals in the recovery process. Host Mary Woods, will help people understand the recovery of adults and families living with co-occurring substance use disorders and psychotic and/or affective illness over the course of a lifetime. Helping individuals develop the skills and knowledge they need to take personal responsibility for their health and supporting individuals in their efforts to get on with life beyond illness has been Mary’s mission and she now brings that mission to the airwaves.
