Inspirations for Youth and Families (IYF) teen rehab and the Cove Center for Recovery were invited on Ask Dr. Nandi, a popular daytime health, lifestyle show which is aired in 80 countries. Karen Corcoran-Walsh, owner of both IYF and the Cove was the featured guest on the program and was joined with two of her clients – a teen and an adult on the show.

“There is no better feeling than seeing the excitement in the eyes of our clients who were guests on the Ask Dr. Nandi show,” said Karen Corcoran-Walsh. “I am so proud of both Christian of Inspirations and Chris from the Cove in the way they rose to the occasion and performed like real pros in front of a live studio audience. Talk about personal growth!!”

Corcoran-Walsh added that what they learned on the three-day business/entertainment trip was invaluable to their development and she believes it will set the foundation for their sustained recovery.

During the interview with Chris, a 26-year-old, who is being treated at the Cove, he bravely talked about his addictions to both heroin and more recently flakka, the dangerous street drug that is terrorizing the streets of South Florida. Chris reflected on the time he had a clear moment, when he found himself in an abandoned house that was completed gutted out by drug users. He was using flakka and decided to call a detox and have them come pick him up so he could begin his remarkable journey to recovery.

Following Chris’ segment, Christian, a 17-year-old-teen in treatment at IYF, explained to Dr. Nandi how he was vaping a dangerous, highly concentrated marijuana product that is also referred to as wax or dabbing. Christian alarmed both Dr. Nandi and the studio audience when he revealed he was using this drug morning, afternoon, and evening every day.

Like the pro Karen is, she served as the drug addiction expert during the interviews, clarifying the sometimes shocking stories – into easily understandable analysis.

Christian alarmed both Dr. Nandi and the studio audience when he revealed that he was using this drug (wax) morning, afternoon, and evening – every day.

Perhaps, one of the biggest benefactors from the program are the teens and parents that will watch this upcoming episode and learn how to detect when a loved one, child, or teen is using these drugs and what they can do before it becomes an uncontrollable addiction.
