OK, now that all that housekeeping is done…. We’re grateful that we recently partnered with Dopey Podcast. Dopey is one of the premier self-help podcasts that focuses on recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, in a comedic manner. Dopey’s growing audience has already totaled over 2 million downloads and averages roughly 20,000 listeners per weekly episode. For nearly 5 years, Dopey has grown in appeal with individuals inside and outside of traditional recovery programs by presenting the experience, strength and hope of individuals from all walks of life.
Guests of Dopey have included Jamie Lee Curtis, Dr. Drew Pinsky and Marc Maron. Back in 2019, Dopey was featured on the popular NPR series “This American Life”, it was then replayed again back in January, this is the link for that episode: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/667/wartime-radio. That episode goes through the history of the Dopey podcast and will give an idea of why the “Dopey Nation” are such a devoted bunch.
Dopey celebrates recovery from addiction and supports all the methods people use to get there, including medication assisted therapy.
We hope you check Dopey out to see if it is something you’d like to add to your toolbox. Here are some places to look to find out more about Dopey:
