The Changing Public Perception and Treatments for Substance Abusers with Jerry Synold (The Pulse Audio)

6/3/2016; 42 minutes

The public perception of substance abuse is changing dramatically, opening up unprecedented opportunities to treat addicts rather than incarcerate them, says Pulse podcast guest Jerry Synold, who's spent more than 40 years specializing in drug and alcohol treatment with the U.S. Navy and elsewhere. "The demand [for counselors] has never been greater," Synold says, with a 22 percent increase anticipated over the next decade. Listen as he discusses everything from Prince's demise to the legalization of marijuana, highlighting both the enormous challenges and sources of help and hope in the field of addiction and recovery.
