This was an amazing conversation with Richard Jones (find him on LinkedIn) around the epidemic of addiction in our society.  I have personally lost friends and seen parents lose their children.  There is no one in America that this is not touching in some form of tragedy.  Richard Jones is a light in the dark for me and many as well as a clear voice of what is happening plus what we might do about it.  A powerful show, one not to be missed.

Richard offers a reality-based approach to the problem of substance use disorders involving the entire family in the process. Addiction doesn’t happen in a vacuum and recovery should be available to all members of the family. If you have a loved one struggling with addiction contact me to explore options. My mission is to reach out to the 90% of troubled individuals who never receive care. ARISE treats everyone with respect, integrity, love, and compassion. Our goal is individual and family recovery.
