This podcast addresses hope and recovery successes for individuals, friends, family, parents and associates who have been or may be addicted to opioids, heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, fentanyl, alcohol, etc. These are stories and interviews with former addicts, parents and loved ones that describe the horrors and ultimately methods they have sought and found to save lives and help. We talk also with law enforcement, doctors, authors, sports figures, academia and advocates. Issues include the changing world of drug abuse and rehab from 12 step programs to alternative and holistic approaches to detox, withdrawal, and education for stable life style changes. The "Point of no Return' is when the individual has come to a realization that they need and want help. Also for friends and family of addicts who are at their wits end and don't know what to do. This podcast is intended to bring hope and inspiration for recovery.
