The addiction treatment industry is facing complex issues, including insurance utilization, parity enforcement, ethics violations, outcomes research gaps, social stigma, and barriers to access along racial and socio-economic lines. At NAATP, we believe that addiction, or substance use disorder, is a bio-psycho-social-spiritual disease that develops and deepens in isolation. Progress in our field, as with recovery itself, can only be achieved through community. That is why we have created All Ears on Addiction, a monthly podcast series, to promote communication, collaboration, and resource sharing between industry stakeholders. Together, we can advance treatment and save lives.

Season 1

In season one of All Ears on Addiction, NAATP brings you Colors of Recovery. Join co-hosts, Zina Rodriguez and Tania Bhattacharyya, as they explore topics related to mental health, addiction treatment, and recovery as it intersects with diversity, equity, and inclusivity for LGBTQ+ communities and communities of color.
