Recovery Is (1st, 3rd, 5th) [Formerly Richmond Recovers] presents:

On today’s show we continue with Dr. Hendrée Jones’ presentation on Whole Person Treatment – Caring for Women Across the Lifespan. This presentation was recorded at the Reynolds-VCU Humphreys Fellows Annual Symposium. This year’s theme: International Perspectives on Women and Substance Abuse. Dr. Jones is a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the School of Medicine, University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She is also the executive director of UNC Horizons, a comprehensive drug treatment program for pregnant and parenting women and their drug-exposed children.

International Narcotics Control Board devoted Chapter 1 of their report in 2016 to women
• The report summarized that compared to men, women:
• Are highly stigmatized
• Experience more violence
• Are less likely to receive treatment for substance use disorders
• Lack access to gender-specific treatment
• Are being incarcerated at higher rates = devastating effects on children
• While gender itself may not predict treatment outcome, there are
gender-specific factors that influence treatment outcomes in women

On today’s show, we have included modules: Peer 2 Ear with Sammy Styles and a V Word module on addiction and substance with Carol Olson.

Secret Bonus Level presents:

What do you know? Seriously, what is it that you know? That you do? Know? Noah Page is here today to tell you all the things that Noah Page knows, that you asked, but what about you? Idk doesn’t that sound like a decent idea for a show to listen to though?

 

But fr tho. How are you doing? Feeling okay? Do you like rap music? I kinda hope so, because this is largely a rap show. But if not, you can just listen to it until it’s over. And then you’ll be good!

 

Ok ily ttyl
