April 3, 2021

On Thursday, April 1, 2021, our Executive Director Loretta Depka Zerbo was joined by the Executive Director of The Beacon Point Treatment Center, Joseph Curran. Like any other life-threatening disease, addiction requires serious and immediate treatment, but treatment for addiction isn’t “one size fits all.” Joe demonstrates that there are proven science-based solutions to addiction and the emotions that fuel it. With so many different approaches available to a potential consumer, Joe discusses the different methods of substance abuse treatment including inpatient, outpatient (IOP), detox, group and one-on-one counseling, sober homes, aftercare services, and support for families. 0:00 Intro 1:26 Joe’s background & credentials in addition recovery 5:45 Addiction Treatment, insurance & no insurance 23:49 12 Step programs 26:32 A day in treatment 30:52 How long is inpatient treatment 34:00 Self Advocacy to fight insurance 35:00 Mixed addictions in treatment centers 36:53 Advise for family For The Beacon Point Recovery Center Please Visit: https://thebeaconpoint.com/ For further help with addiction please visit: Drug and Alcohol Service Providers Organization of Pennsylvania – http://daspop.org/ The Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services – https://www.nj.gov/humanservices/dmhas/home/ The Starting Point Website: https://startingpoint.org/ The Starting Point’s List of Meetings: https://startingpoint.org/weekly-meetings/ For Live & Virtual Meetings Please Visit The Starting Point Calendar: https://startingpoint.org/calendar/ To Donate Please Visit: https://startingpoint.org/todays-donation/ The Founder of The Starting Point Vince DiPasquale’s YouTube Channel : https://www.youtube.com/c/VinceDiPasquale/featured
