Podcast – RP 39 Cynthia Humphrey Speaks on the Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act

This week on RecoveryPeople, Cynthia Humphrey, woman in longterm recovery and the Executive Director of the Association of Substance Abuse Programs (ASAP), educates us on the Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act (CARA), a bill currently before the US Congress. A 20 year veteran in advocacy, Cynthia shares her hope for the future and excitement around peers “coming out of church basements” so policymakers can here our voices and witness how the recovery has changed our lives. Cynthia also talks about the Parity law what we should do if our insurance denies our right to mental health and/or substance use services.
