Families in Recovery Series: Virtual Substance Use Support Proves to Be Effective
The pandemic saw substance use rates skyrocket and with it an increased need for support. But the inability to get to in-person support meetings and even treatment facilities required a new approach: virtual recovery. Is virtual recovery effective? How can it benefit the entire family? And how does one begin the virtual journey? Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation experts discuss the options with Bryan Fenley, Fox Sports Radio, National Anchor.
The episode features Carrie Bates, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, an HBF alumni, and current HBF senior outreach manager and Jerry Moe, who worked for HBF as Executive Director of the National Children’s Program for 23 years. Moe is also an advisor for Sesame Street where he helps shape the show’s discussions around addiction and mental health.
