In the Fight
In The Fight is a monthly half-hour program showcasing the latest action from the field.
In this episode, as one mission ends another begins in Afghanistan, Iraq adds the F-16 Fighting Falcon to its air force, partner nations exchange military tactics and training, we jump with the U.S. Special Operations Command Parachute Team, and we meet a First Sergeant who got help when he needed it the most.
Road to Recovery
Road to Recovery promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible.
Using New Technologies To Expand Treatment and Recovery Services
This show will identify and promote the use of new technologies that facilitate and expand treatment and recovery services. These new technologies include social media (social network and messaging systems—Facebook and Twitter), interactive text messaging platforms, and smart phone applications. These technologies are enabling new models of behavioral health care both within and outside of formal or traditional systems of care. The benefits of using these technologies will be highlighted, such as their ability to build virtual recovery communities, facilitate peer support, and enable a person in recovery to participate anonymously. Specific technology programs and systems proving to be effective in facilitating treatment and recovery will be described. Applications of these technologies in the realms of prevention and assessment will also be presented.
