Coming May 18th from the creators of the Last Day podcast, In Recovery will fill the much-needed gap for individuals and their loved ones seeking immediate and long-term support with addiction. Hosted by physician and addiction medicine specialist Dr. Nzinga Harrison, this weekly series will field questions in a radio-style, call-in format from real people struggling with every form of addiction, from drugs and alcohol to work and gambling. In Recovery is also for healthcare providers and anyone committed to a more values-based, comprehensive and compassionate approach to recovery and mental health in America and abroad.
In Recovery with Dr. Nzinga Harrison
If you have a heart attack, you go to the hospital. Kid is sick? Call the pediatrician. So why do the rules change when it comes to addiction? When you or a loved one needs immediate help, it’s hard to know where to go or what to do. Start here. Join Dr. Nzinga Harrison, a physician board-certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Eleanor Health, who believes in a comprehensive, compassionate approach to treating addiction. Whether it’s heroin, pain pills, alcohol, meth, food, sex, or anything under the sun–it’s time to shift our thinking away from 28 days and onto recovery for life. From the creators of Last Day, this is your weekly go-to for any and all questions about addiction, treatment, mental health, recovery, and everything in between.
