Welcome to the latest podcast from SMART Recovery. What happens inside drug and alcohol rehab centers and how rehab works has been a mystery to those outside the industry – and sometimes even to those inside it. In this webinar, award-winning author Anne Fletcher explores the gap in addiction treatment between “best practice” and reality, as well as offering solutions for those contemplating rehab.

Fletcher, M.S., R.D. is a nationally known health and medical writer, speaker, and consultant on the topics of weight management and lifestyle change, as well as treatment and recovery from addiction.

In advance of publication, Inside Rehab has received high acclaim from numerous experts in the field, as well as several starred reviews.
As a registered dietitian with a B.S. degree from Cornell University and an M.S. from Drexel University, Anne has counseled hundreds of people with weight problems.
