Addiction professionals in the San Jose, Calif. community and beyond came together on May 15, 2014, to discuss building a recovery-oriented system of care (ROSC).

The event, produced by Addiction Professional, featured several panelists who provided their insights on the unique challenges and opportunities faced when working with families.

During this podcast, Dr. Jes Montgomery, Psychiatric Director of the Gratitude Program at Pine Grove Behavioral Health, admits that psychiatrists face stigma in the treatment system, and explains how building a two-way street of communication is vital to ensuring patient success.
