30-04-2021 • 1 hr 26 mins

RMA-Episode 34 Show Notes:

This week on RMA, Get Smart With Erin Moore returns to discuss sobriety during the pandemic, and how traditional recovery programs tried to adapt to the new reality of COVID-19. How did they do? Can you help an addict over Zoom?

Also, the guys finish their review of Paul Churchill’s Alcohol is Shit and consider whether “Plant Medicine” is really all that it’s cracked up to be. Plus, Nat tells a funny acid story and Mike is dodging the parish priest. Don’t miss it!

Recovery In The News this week asks why the New York Times seems aggressively interested in keeping people drinking, in this case, right after being vaccinated, and the Week in Weird asks whether spider-human hybrids are scaring dogs in Costa Rica

All this, plus the week in review, and a “Your Story” segment from listener Erick on a post-pandemic, inoculated, re-emerging into the light filled 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.
