    Ep7: Where Hope Meets Possibility | AOP

    6 JUN. 2024 · I am taking a slight detour in this week's podcast, but you will find it interesting and relevant. I am talking with Carl Mack, a member of CVARR, Central Virginia Addiction Recovery Resources Coalition, a community-based group that connects people with recovery and prevention resources. Carl works for the Central Virginia Department of Health and is a peer recovery expert. He's also very creative when it comes to developing new programs based on research and community involvement. I interviewed him recently for a CVARR video and thought it would make a great addition to An Ounce of Prevention. You can reach CVARR through their website at CVARR.org.

  • Ep5: Funding Research is Key | AOP

    9 MAY. 2024 · The evidence for evidence-based treatment and prevention has to come from somewhere. Funding such research is expensive. According to Foundation of Hope Associate Executive Director Jennifer Gibson, their grants are like venture capital to researchers who need to provide proof of concept to larger funders.

  • Ep2: The elephant in the room - Fentanyl | AOP

    28 MAR. 2024 · Adam Neal, Prevention and Wellness Specialist, and Director of the Roanoke Area Youth Substance Abuse Coalition (RAYSAC) spoke with me about the nationwide issue of Fentanyl and what his community is doing to limit access to medications and reduce the possibilities of misuse, especially among children and youth. National Drug Take Back Day is April 27th, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Citizens are encouraged to drop off left-over and used prescriptions to keep them out of circulation. "I don't know about you, Tim, but my grandma, you know, whenever I said I had a headache, she'd reach into her purse and, hand me a Tylenol or whatever she had ready to go," said Adam. "We don't need to normalize this behavior anymore." Adam shares what his community is doing to combat the problem and what people can do to help.
