The Reluctant Therapist: Addressing addiction as a community

When the need became greater than the government, established programs and state agencies could handle, caring citizens came together to address the addiction crisis, and other issues facing students and families in their community. Over 20 years later, the thriving Atascadero Greyhound Foundation is still tirelessly working to provide healing and opportunities to those who are struggling. What can other communities learn from this successful model? And what kind of help are parents still looking for? Tune in Tuesday at 2 for a conversation with Elizabeth Barrett, the reluctant therapist and foundation Executive Director, Donn Clickard about doing what needs to be done for the greater good.


Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
