This month’s Addiction Recovery Channel features a talk by host and producer Ed Baker. Thirty years of clinical practice informs Ed’s understanding of people with substance use disorder. He has had the privilege of listening very intently to many people’s revelations about the ways addiction develops. Ed is also himself in long-term recovery for 35 years. Ed’s talk, “Understanding and Supporting People With Addiction,” answers many questions related to addiction-risk and the complex, gradual and innocent development of this disease. Ed also discusses the idea of “Positive Messaging” to dispel stigma.

This talk was part of the Lamoille Valley 4th Annual Opioid Forum. To view the entire forum, please visit:

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website:
