10 Secrets People in Recovery from Addiction Know that Could Help Us All Survive this Global Pandemic
People in recovery can teach us a lot about making it through tough times with strength and dignity.  Rams in Recovery  and  The Well  are collaborating to share some recovery wisdom we can borrow as we navigate our new reality.

Pandemics and Infodemics—Wisdom in the Time of Covid-19
Russell Brand Interview with Dr. Gabor Maté
Russell Brand: Most of us know you for your work on addiction and mental health. With the global pandemic and the anxiety, fear, and dread that it engendered, what have you observed so far? What applicable therapeutic information do you have for us?

Dr. Gabor Maté: Well, you know you’re asking bigger questions than my brain is ready to provide answers to. Just today, I was online with a group of therapists that I am training in my particular way of working. Two of them—one from New York City and one from the First Nations community here in British Columbia—were saying that they are working with a highly traumatized population. And, amongst them, the panic is just immense about this virus.

Recovery Hero: Joey Johnson
This week's Recovery Hero is Joey Johnson. Joey is an integral part of the team at SRC. He also chairs our All Recovery meeting on Tuesday nights. He is a great example of a person who walks the walk. Thanks for all you do Joey!
My name is Joey Johnson and I have been in recovery since around September of 2014, however my sober date is 10/1/2016.
Before entering recovery I had dropped out of college and was headed on a one way track to jail, death, or institutions.
I would say my biggest accomplishment since being in recovery was returning to school and receiving my bachelors degree in general communications. In addition to that, making it through life’s challenges (day by day) without needing to drink or drug has been an accomplishment as well.
Colorado’s Statewide Strategic Plan for Substance Use Disorder Recovery: 2020-2025
The story of recovery is not told in the past tense. It’s a story that unfolds in the present, with a hope-filled vision of the future.
And now, Colorado has a strategic plan to reorient systems, clinical care, and communities to promote recovery. Recovery is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.
