Beyond Theory Presents: Recovery Replay
We often hear stories of recovery that can be both challenging and powerful. But is that the complete story?
Join host Dominic Lawson as he presents a new and unique way those stories are told. The journey starts from the beginning on Recovery Replay and shares a person's recovery journey from three different perspectives. There is a person in recovery, their support person, and lastly, a clinician that will provide commentary and proper context.
Debuts April 26th.
S4 E20: Patrick Carnes on Sex Addiction
Technology's purpose is to improve the quality of life for humanity. But unfortunately, in many ways, it has provided unintended consequences, for example, serving as stimuli for sex addiction. Dr. Patrick Carnes says that as technologies evolve, we must remain vigilant about this issue, especially when it comes to adolescents. But can vigilance and treatment practices evolve just as rapidly as technology?
Dr. Patrick Carnes is a Senior Fellow at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. He has over 30 years of experience in the addiction field and is a leading voice in sex addiction. He is also the primary architect of the Gentle Path treatment program, which addresses sexual issues and contributing addictive disorders.

S4 E19: Dr. Richard Schwartz on Internal Family Systems
All of us have these parts within us. Sometimes those parts build us up with positive affirmations. But some of them can be our harshest critics. Dr. Richard Schwartz says that the mind is naturally multiple, which is a good thing. But how are someone's parts differentiated from, say, multiple personality disorder?
Dr. Richard Schwartz is a systemic family therapist and an academic. Grounded in systems thinking, Dr. Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems (IFS) in response to clients' descriptions of various parts within themselves. Find out more about his work at ifs-institute.com.
S4 E18: Georgia Fourlas on the Root of Addiction
The path to addiction has many layers. And when a patient has co-occurring disorders, those layers become more abundant and complex. Dr. Georgia Fourlas says that just treating the symptoms isn’t enough and that going to the root of the problem is the one true path to recovery. But what does it take to get to the root cause?
Dr. Georgia Fourlas is the Clinical Director of Workshops for Rio Retreat Center, part of Meadows Behavioral Healthcare.

S4 E17: Madelyn Rousku on Vulnerability as a Strength
Being vulnerable can be a precarious proposition. Too often, one could perceive it as a sign of weakness or, worse, used against us. Dr. Madelyn Rousku says it takes courage to be vulnerable because it takes us to a place we often don't want to go. But can displaying our vulnerability also be a source of strength?
Dr. Madelyn Rousku is a board-certified psychiatrist and serves as chief of psychiatry at the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, part of Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. She specializes in treating young adults who are experiencing a wide range of psychiatric concerns from substance use, eating issues, and mood and anxiety disorders to autism, sexual and gender identity, and more.

Jennifer Angier interview was excellent!
Wow, loved listening to the interview with Jennifer Angier-The deeds of Mercy. Compassionate, brilliant, humble, and meaningful.
Looking forward to more.
Interesting to hear about how this Meadows model developed and also how patterns/family models are integral to addiction issues. Actually this idea relates to so much more than addiction — applicable to anyone.
