The purpose of these Internet podcasts is to increase awareness about recovery from substance use disorders and mental illness and to decrease the stigma and increase awareness of the discrimination that exists for people with substance use disorders and mental illness. Our hope is that people will understand that recovery is a process and that there is treatment that is as effective as what is being used for other chronic illnesses.
