This week on RMA it’s the Recovery in the News Roundup, coming to you from the new studio at Castle Greyskull! Mike and Nat combed through SoberliningsPlaybook’s Wednesday Weekly, and picked out some stories that bear further investigation. We do a deep dive on Dry January’s effect on small business, why women aren’t seeking SUD treatment at the same rate as men despite an uptick in use and overdoses, whether long-term support in recovery is a desirable avenue given the current state of the rehab industry, and why fentanyl test strips are still illegal in Wisconsin. Phew!
As if that wasn’t enough, we also managed to get in a week in weird, Monksters Speak, an analysis of the movie Groundhog Day as a Buddhist allegory, and do an extended week in review, on an exhaustive, encyclopedic, free-range episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
