#143: Guest Hosts – The Sklar Brothers
Drew is joined by Jason and Randy Sklar this week to discuss their new album ‘What Are We Talking About?‘ They also take listener phone calls on the dangers of Adderall use while in recovery, breaking off an engagement after a 10-year relationship, and how to help an out-of-state relative who is struggling with addiction.

I really like the caller asking about Adderall while in recovery. I had a similar situation, started taking the pills (I think I had focalin, which was supposedly more resistant to abuse) as prescribed and before long I was eating about 17 a day. I told my psychiatrist I wanted to get off of them because I couldn’t handle it. He was astonished when I told him my dose. For me, it was more like “well duh what did you expect?” It’s amazing how people outside of the recovery world don’t get addict minds…
But to be fair I thought I could handle it at the time too…
