Authored by Nick Goldberg

On Saturday, June 4, 2022, John Demasi, host of South Jersey radio show Talk With A Purpose, hosted Dawn Belamarich, Recovery Centers of America’s Senior Vice President of Clinical and Operational Excellence.

Centering on the principle that addiction is a serious disease in need of serious treatment, Belamarich brought her expertise to bear on the need for 24/7 round-the-clock care, including psychiatric, medical and nursing treatment, across a full continuum of care, treating co-occurring mental health disorders, with scientific, evidence-based techniques.
