A few weeks ago, a very enthusiastic sales representative from the Malone radio station, WICY, Julie Derouchie, approached St. Joseph’s with a unique opportunity to spread the word about our programs, opportunities, and culture through a 13-week series of interviews.
Julie, it turns out, is a CASAC, and a former student of St. Joseph’s Mental Health/MAT Coordinator, Dave Munn, who she described as a “wonderful teacher”.
The five-minute segments are to be broadcast each Wednesday morning at 9:20 through the end of the year and cover the following topics:
10/3: History/Background of St. Joseph’s Addiction Treatment & Recovery Centers
10/10: Confidentiality/Privacy/What to expect when you contact St. Joseph’s
10/17: Counselors / groups vs individual counselling
10/24: Therapy, Part 1- Therapists- Inpatient vs. Outpatient
10/31: Therapy part 2 – MAT (Medically Assisted Treatment)
