RMA-Episode 105 Show Notes:
RMA-Episode 105: Skid Row Recovery. If you find yourself using drugs in a place like the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, a guy like Scott Mannheimer is someone you want in your corner. Kensington is a notorious skid row, where it is common to find addicts shooting up in broad daylight, hunched over in a stupor or passed out on the streets. Needles, syringes and garbage are littered across the sidewalks. Into this scene of urban desperation walks Scott, a former addict who had a spiritual awakening in front of a cheesesteak restaurant and decided to dedicate his life to helping addicts get clean. This week he sits down with Mike and Nat and shares his story.
Also, the Week in Weird returns with a fresh bigfoot sighting (!) and Recovery in the News asks, are you ready to be assimilated by the Borg collective?
You can find Scott at his website: Kensington Hope

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step (but maybe not the last step), on your road to recovery.
