Suzanne Marcus Fletcher discusses with John M. Greene M.D. of Summit Estate Recovery Center why Suboxone is now considered the gold standard treatment for opioid dependence rather than older medications such as methadone, and much more about Suboxone and its therapeutic use.

This week the St. Christopher’s Inn Recovery Radio Podcast focuses on the use of medications in treatment. Host David Gerber is joined by St. Christopher’s Inn Director of Nursing and Admissions, Laurel McCullagh, to tackle the benefits and challenges of medicating clients in chemical dependency treatment. Together they shed light on when to medicate and for how long, and when not to medicate because a client is simply med-seeking.

Life After Detox is where recovery if any is needed starts.
The first thing people with substance problems need are tools addressing how to avoid a lapse, when life becomes overwhelming without the substance. This is life after detox.
Naltrexone and Suboxone are the tools of the trade obviously; reducing harms is the humane way to address the more severe cases.

On the radio show today I am going to talk about my very personal and heart breaking battle to help my Heroin Addicted son get the help he needs so that he can be free from the chains of his Heroin Addiction.
I will share how he was in an effective treatment program and was doing good and what happened that changed all of that for him. I will share the incredible and mind boggling story about what happened that led to him going into a downward spiral and he has now "crashed" so to speak. And I am with him and here for him to help him try and put the pieces of his life back together again.
And, not only am I helping him with his most serious situation, I am a care taker for 2 other people who are mentally ill and disabled. I am also living with and dealing with my own issues of having 2 brain tumors. AND to top it all off, I am working on putting the details together for my upcoming brain tumor walk across America with my walker, beginning November 1st from Clearwater Florida.
If you are a Heroin or drug addict or you know someone who is you want to listen to this show. You want them to listen to this show. There will be no "pie in the sky" easy fix, positive thinking mumbo jumbo talk on today's radio show. No, today the show will be about hard realities and REAL, Powerfully life-transforming ways to change our lives, regardless of our addictions or dysfunctional habits.
This week's show will feature a special guest, Dr. Bruce Latham, a family practice physician, who has an addiction treatment program as part of his practice. What does this have to do with our topic for the month of June on sexually explicit media you ask? Addiction, that's what. People who frequent sexually explicit internet websites, films and printed media become addicted to these formats and their brain chemistry changes in ways similar to people who have substance abuse problems. We'll hear Dr. Latham's thoughts on how this process affects physical and mental health. Be sure to listen in!!!
