The Road to Recovery - Disaster Recovery - Helping Survivors Recover from Trauma

This episode is currently not viewable online.

Our society increasingly is recognizing that the victims of a disaster need support to recover from the trauma associated with the disaster event. Disasters include natural disasters such as severe storms, floods, and wild land fires as well as manmade events such as mas shootings or other acts of violence.  Trauma from disasters can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health problems, and can put victims at higher risk of substance abuse.

The Road to Recovery - Treatment and Recovery in the Adult and Juvenile Criminal Justice System

This episode is currently not viewable online.

Persons involved in both the juvenile and adult justice systems commonly are struggling with mental disorders, substance use disorders, or both.  This show will recognize and promote a trend to directly address mental and substance use disorders in these individuals through treatment and recovery support.

The Road to Recovery - Understanding Diverse Cultures

This episode is currently not viewable online.

This show will underscore the need to understand the culture of specific communities as critical to success in providing recovery services.  Overcoming language barriers and appreciating the health-related beliefs and practices held by various diverse communities is becoming increasingly important with the rapidly changing demographics in our nation.  A "community" is defined here broadly, encompassing racial and ethinic groups as well as other clearly defined groups such as faith communities and military families.
