RCA at Lighthouse CEO Dawn Belamarich Discusses the Effects of COVID-19 on Addiction Treatment

Authored by James Malervy

RCA at Lighthouse CEO Dawn Belamarich joined the BlueCrest Recovery Center livestream to discuss the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on drug and alcohol treatment. Addiction, and particularly the opioid epidemic, were already major problems in the United States prior to the pandemic. But in the last year, the situation has only grown worse, as anxiety, unemployment and isolation have increased during the COVID-19 crisis, exacerbating struggles with drugs and alcohol.

Watch Belamarich and her fellow panelists describe the problem, as well as the steps Recovery Centers of America, is taking to counteract it here:
