In this episode, my former supervisor Sarah Cloud comes on and discusses her relationship with me, how we worked together, but more importantly, the change that needs to occur in the substance use world so that we can discuss treatment in a different way, navigating the ressources effectively, the stigma that the medical world can also impose on substance use, as well as partnering in the community. We also discuss her Bulldog Running Club, exercise, and her writing career.
