The Recovery Machine Podcast is a show hosted by two former healthcare workers who have lived experience with drug addiction. Episodes feature discussions about the following:
Mental health, addiction treatment options, tools for recovery, drug policy, socioeconomic factors of addiction, the language of addiction, beliefs and myths about drugs, the war on drugs, harm reduction, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma and PTSD, workplace risks, human rights, safe supply, drug regulation, the toxic drug crisis, psychology, compulsive behavior, neuroscience, genetics and personality traits related to addiction, and drug addiction in healthcare workers.
Guests are brought in to offer insight and expertise on a regular basis.
In short – to help. We’ve been through the drug addiction treatment process for healthcare workers in BC, and there are many things we wish we’d known before starting. So, one of our goals is to provide current, accurate information to other healthcare workers who might be struggling with substance use.
We believe that by informing people about their options and the possible outcomes of their decisions, individuals will be better prepared to deal with the obstacles they will face.
We also want to offer authentic, meaningful, factual discourse on substance use. We want to help change how people who use drugs are perceived. Recovery Machine is a tool we hope to use to dispel myths, improve understanding, and fight the countless drug policy injustices taking place right now in our society.
Knowledge is power and when you’re at your lowest, surrounded by the darkness of the unknown, we’d like to offer you a light, a hand, and if you’re interested – a map.
