Description

If you have a heart attack, you go to the hospital. Kid is sick? Call the pediatrician. So why do the rules change when it comes to addiction? When you or a loved one needs immediate help, it’s hard to know where to go or what to do. Start here. Join Dr. Nzinga Harrison, a physician board-certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine, who believes in a comprehensive, compassionate approach to treating addiction. Whether it’s heroin, pain pills, alcohol, meth, food, sex, or anything under the sun--it’s time to shift our thinking away from 28 days and onto recovery for life. From the creators of Last Day, this is your weekly go-to for any and all questions about addiction, treatment, mental health, recovery, and everything in between. In Recovery returns for Season 2 in April, with some special episodes between now and then.

One Alternative To Policing That Could Work
2295
Representative Leslie Herod knows what it's like to have a family member struggle with addiction and incarceration. But she also knows that this is more a failure of a greater system than a failure of a sibling, and that’s informed the policy and programs she’s spearheaded around mental health, substance misuse, and the criminal justice system. Nzinga and Representative Herod talk about how current systems of policing and treating substance misuse not only bypass treating mental health, but often make it worse. Luckily, Representative Herod has a program in Denver, Colorado that has actually worked.   Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.    Learn more about the STAR program here.   Click this link for a list of current sponsors and discount codes for this show and all Lemonada shows: Sponsor Links   Have an addiction-related question?

Anxiety is the Missing Stage of Grief
2423
Over the last 14 months, everyone in this country has experienced some type of loss. But as a nation, we’re not always great at talking about our grief.

I Spent My 14th Birthday In Rehab (with Georgia Hardstark)
2815
Georgia Hardstark quit meth on her own when she was 14 years old. Today, she thinks about this youthful willpower in her moments of self doubt, which she still has despite her huge success as one of the hosts of the hit comedy-true crime podcast My Favorite Murder. Georgia talks to Nzinga about the childhood factors that lead her to meth, her early recovery journey, and what she’s noticed since she started a new path of recovery -- quitting drinking one month ago.    Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.    Click this link for a list of current sponsors and discount codes for this show and all Lemonada shows: Sponsor Links   Have an addiction-related question?

How Do We Survive the Holidays?
2277
The intersection between addiction and the holidays can be challenging. Even more so when you add a global pandemic into the mix. So Nzinga is ending Season 1 of In Recovery by answering listener questions. We hear from a woman who is worried about the toxic environment that will come with her wife’s return from rehab, even if her drinking won’t. Another listener asks about how to cope with so much loss and grief in isolation, and a third wants to know how to handle the guilt trip she gets when she tries to set boundaries.

Am I Overreacting?
2007
Alicia called in about her husband's gambling and asked one of the more common questions about uncommon addictions –– is he in denial or am I overreacting? When it comes to the more subtle or nuanced addictions, it can be easy to second guess our concern or convince someone they are overreacting. Which is exactly what happened for Alicia. So, Nzinga helps her answer this question and gives her tools to talk to her husband about gambling.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Have an addiction-related question?

Beauty in the Grit
2094
Air proudly identifies as a Black woman in long term recovery. Today, that’s a source of strength, but that wasn’t always the case -- she says she felt uncomfortable in her skin since the day she was born. In an intimate and vulnerable conservation with Nzinga, Air shares how she’s learned to take the moments of discomfort and uncertainty and use them to connect with herself, her community, and her identity. It is in these harder moments that Air finds the most beauty and pride in her life. Have an addiction-related question? We want to hear from you!

Replay: Racism is an Addiction
3417
As we get ready to gather, in person or virtually, for one of our country’s more complicated holidays, we return to an episode about racism in the United States. Nzinga takes the opportunity to talk about how racism biologically and psychologically impacts our black and brown communities. Yes, this kind of chronic trauma leads to increased substance use disorders. But even more so, this episode explores how racism itself is the addiction of America.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Have an addiction-related question?

Let's Talk About Meth
2039
Overdose deaths from methamphetamine use have been surging in the US, not unlike opioids. But meth isn’t talked about as much. In this episode, Nzinga brings on Eleanor Health Clinic Manager Jack Register to talk about why meth has been prominent in certain communities and why there is less publicity over the rise in numbers. Plus, Nzinga lays the groundwork on how meth impacts our brains, behaviors, and bodies.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Have an addiction-related question?

Ask Me Anything #2
1922
Lately, it seems like we are looking for answers everywhere about everything. Luckily, Nzinga is here to answer more listener questions about all things addiction. One man wants to know how he and his partner can find healthier coping mechanisms, especially in the wake of election stress. Another woman asks how she can use her own addiction experience as a cautionary tale for her 11-year-old brother who’s fascinated with drugs. And, a pharmacist is looking for resources she can provide for clients who may be facing addiction. Nzinga answers these questions, and a range of others, in the second “Ask Me Anything” episode.

Everybody Vapes
2127
When Sergio started vaping, it didn’t seem like a big deal. After all, he was surrounded by people vaping and drinking at school. But lately, this casual habit feels a lot like an addiction, and he’s not sure how to stop. This week, Sergio and Nzinga talk about what makes vaping so addictive, what to do when you feel like a party pooper, and how to stop spending the equivalent of 6 Chipotle Burrito Bowls a week on cartridges.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Have an addiction-related question?

Nzinga Harrison Recommended Listening: Last Day Season Two
1100
We open Season 2 of Last Day with a tale of two Kevins. One is Sergeant Kevin Briggs, also known as the guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge.

This week, we tell the larger story behind a moment of intervention—what led up to it and what happened in the 15 years since. We’re also joined by Courtney Knowles, our advisor at the Jed Foundation (a nonprofit devoted to emotional health and suicide prevention), who’s here to poke holes in our narrative.   If you or someone you know is struggling emotionally or feeling hopeless, it’s important to talk to someone about it now.

Can You Do Recovery Alone?
2310
It’s (still) a global pandemic, and we are (still) doing a lot of things alone. In this episode, Nzinga talks about how recovery doesn’t have to be one of them. Even for Evan, a 22 year old who knows that his partner and family will be devastated if they find out, and feels like treatment options are out of the picture while he’s on his parents' insurance. In this episode, Evan and Nzinga talk one on one about the ways Evan can get out of solitude and find the support he’s been looking for for years.

Actually, Weed Is Addictive
1995
In a single state, let’s say California, you can walk into a dispensary and buy weed legally while down the block your neighbor is still in prison for a weed possession charge from a decade ago. Weed, like most topics we talk about on this show, is complicated. One caller wants to know if something can even be addictive if there is no physical withdrawal, while another wants to know how to set boundaries for her daughters who are smoking weed daily and don’t think it’s an issue. In this episode, Nzinga uses weed to break down what she means when she says addiction is continued behavior despite negative consequences.  Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.  Start planning your term life insurance at havenlife.org/inrecovery.

Why Is Latinx Mental Health So Ignored?
1988
Every community does mental health differently - some, more than others. For the Latinx community, which has largely ignored issues of mental health and addiction, a facility exists in Washington DC where community members can access medical, mental health, and addiction treatment all in one place. On this week's episode, Nzinga sits down with Angie Castro, a mental health professional from La Clinica Del Pueblo, for a fascinating conversation about boundaries, barriers and bridges to wellbeing.

How to Find Personalized Treatment
2077
In 2011, Gary Mendell's 25 yr old son, Brian, died by suicide after struggling with addiction for a decade. As Gary was supporting Brian through his recovery, remission, and relapses, he realized that, unlike other diseases, there was no real place to go for help. No huge foundation funding research. No 5k’s. So in the wake of Brian’s death, Gary created it himself. This week, Nzinga talks to Gary about the formation of Shatterproof, ATLAS (a treatment locator, assessment, and standards platform), and the immense importance of providing evidence-based education, resources, and treatment options.

It can be hard to get a teenager to talk about anything, period. So when it comes to talking to teens about drugs and addiction? Yikes.
