Addiction professionals in the Salt Lake City, Utah, community and beyond came together on June 5, 2013, to discuss building a recovery-oriented system of care (ROSC). The event, produced by Addiction Professional, featured several panelists to provide their insights on ROSC. One of the panelists was Michael Desjardins, APRN PMHNP-BC, a board-certified family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner at Journey Healing Centers.

In the podcast below, Desjardins points out that the field has been able to address stigma relating to addiction, but there is still a long way to go.
