SMART Recovery was recently featured on NPR’s 1-A podcast, a program that has 4 million listeners each week on 354 public radio stations across America.
Barry Grant is Director of Outpatient Services with Hope House Treatment Centers in Annapolis, Maryland, and a long-time SMART Recovery volunteer and advocate. In this episode he highlights the importance of choice in recovery, multiple pathways, and the need for medication-assisted treatment — philosophies that are supported in the SMART Recovery 4-Point Program®.
Taken from the 1-A website, “Every day, host Joshua Johnson convenes a conversation about the most important issues of our time. The show takes a deep and unflinching look at America, bringing context and insight to stories unfolding across the country and the world.
With a name inspired by the First Amendment*, 1A explores important issues such as policy, politics, technology, and what connects us across the fissures that divide the country. The program also delves into pop culture, sports and humor. 1A’s goal is to act as a national mirror — taking time to help America look at itself and to ask what it wants to be.”
