The Broken Brain

Dave from Pop Culture Case Study rejoins the show to talk addiction recovery, a specialty of his. 

We tackle the difficult but vital issue of building (or rebuilding) social support in sobriety maintenance. Addiction has many costs, but a big one is the damage it does to our family and friendship relations. And few things are as helpful to recovery from addiction than a healthy support system. We talk about experiments with RATS, finding new friends, repairing existing relationships, and allowing for a damaged sense of delayed gratification. 

Quick links from our talk: check out Refuge Recovery, the HAMS network, and Meetup.com (or any of the social meet-up sites). 

Make sure to check out Dave's show, especially his latest few episodes about The Nice Guys, and X-Men movies.
