    Episode 9: The Overdose Crisis Meets COVID19, is "Self-Care" Really a Thing?

    Join Sean Fogler and Bill Kinkle as they return to discuss the difficulty of working on the front lines at the intersection point of the overdose crisis and the coronavirus pandemic. The team tries to tackle the difficulties many of our friends who suffer with problematic substance use and experience homelessness deal with, many of which have been exacerbated by COVID19.

    Sean and Bill also dig deep into the concept of "self-care" and debate its utility in the current climate. Of course they also talk about health professional monitoring programs and how their control and discrimination have prevented valuable clinicians from serving during the pandemic.

    Episode 8: The Untapped Resource: Family with Patrick Doyle

    Join our hosts as we chat with our good friend Patrick Doyle from Family Addiction Coaching as we discuss the role of the family in a person's recovery. Often the family is excluded from treatment and viewed either as "co-dependent" or "enabling" therefore, seen as a liability. However, many health professionals who struggle with substance use have deep seeded relationships with their families, spouses and children. How do we begin to change the culture and see the family as a critical element to long term recovery? Listen as we discuss about the most ignored, but valuable resource a person brings.

    Episode 7: Is This What Prelapse Feels Like? Relapse Prevention

    Episode 7: Is This What Prelapse Feels Like? Relapse Prevention

    Join the team in this episode as they take a deep dive into one of the most abstract concepts a person in recovery faces. Often relapse prevention plans are manufactured on an assembly line and delivered with no consideration for the individual. The factors that potentially jeopardize our recovery can be subtle and undetectable. Sean and Bill embark on a transparent discussion regarding Bill’s recent close call, how he avoided disaster, why sustained recovery requires an individual to understand themselves well, the importance of peer support, and the role of the family. We hope you enjoy this episode and it offers something useful for either your own recovery planning or the patients you care for.

    Episide 5: Why Do We Hate Drug Users?

    Episode 5: Why Do We Hate Drug Users? Stigma

    In this episode of Health Professionals in Recovery we shift from having a guest and recorded a lecture given by Bill Kinkle to an audience of first year medical students during their fifth week of training. Bill spoke to them about recovery, stigma, race, the war of drugs, physician health programs, treatment, and advocacy through the lens of his own personal experience.

    Bill explains how our nation’s policies surrounding drugs combined with television, film, and print media have shaped how we think about people who use drugs. Moreover, our unconscious bias directly impacts how we care about our patients as well as how we view ourselves when we develop substance use disorders. Through this exploration Bill explains how his experiences have fueled his advocacy on several fronts.

    Bachelor of Arts in 1993 from Washington University in St. Louis. In 1999, he graduated from American

fills void in addictions information space

These interviewers get it; recovery from substance use disorders is different for health care providers, than it is for most others. Great information to increase awareness and ability to meet needs of this special patient population who deserve quality treatment and opportunity for recovery. We know that many HCPs continue to practice despite active addiction; let's encourage them to feel comfortable enough to ask for professional help.
