This week on Dopey! In another Park City Song Summit based episode - we are joined by recovery legend and the former Director of Music Cares Harold Owens! Harold takes us on a trip back in the day of growing up in Los Angeles, shooting barbiturates and ultimately succumbing to heroin addiction. Before experiencing the old school therapeutic community of synanon! Then we hear how Harold turned it around becoming a recovery advocate and helping hundreds of addicts and alcoholic as a facilitator, interventionist and eventually as the Executive Director of Music Cares. Then we stumble onto celebrity Chef Jeff Mauro who tells us of a lost stoner adventure in Amsterdam. All leading up to the Rough Return of Fentanyl Jay.
It is a bumpy ride, buckle up for the brand new epidsoe of the Good Old Dopey Show!
More About Dopey:
Dopey Podcast is the world’s greatest podcast on drugs, addiction and dumb shit. Chris and I were two IV heroin addicts who loved to talk about all the coke we smoked, snorted and shot, all the pills we ate, smoked, all the weed we smoked and ate, all the booze we consumed and all the consequences we suffered. After making the show for 2 and a half years, Chris tragically relapsed and died from a fentanyl overdose. Dopey continued on, at first to mourn the horrible loss of Chris, but then to continue our mission - which was at its core, to keep addicts and alcoholics company. Whether to laugh at our time in rehab, or cry at the worst missteps we made, Dopey tells the truth about drugs, addiction and recovery. We continually mine the universe for stories rife with debauchery and highlight serious drug taking and alcoholism. We also examine different paths toward addiction recovery. We shine a light on harm reduction and medication assisted treatment. We talk with celebrities and nobodies and stockpile stories to be the greatest one stop shop podcast on all things drugs, addiction, recovery and comedy pathfinding the route to the heart of the opioid epidemic.
