Dedicated to providing ethical behavioral healthcare and enhanced social wellness services across the US and around the world, C4 brings you stories from the people who made it possible.

 

Welcome to the C4 Recovery Solutions Podcast Series

From the United Kingdom to the Navajo Nation of New Mexico, C4 Recovery (C4) launches programs that provide a continuum of care to behavioral health recovery organizations and large governmental systems who need help the most. We work alongside leaders to customize and implement highly unique and responsive strategies that focus on impact and results.

This podcast series takes you behind-the-scenes into some of C4’s biggest success stories. From working with policymakers to keep people out of prison, to providing much needed support for female addicts and those in poverty, C4 prioritizes supporting the often-overlooked members of our society.

 

 

This six-episode series takes the listener on an in-depth review and analysis of just a few of C4’s successful projects.

  • Policy development in the United Kingdom
  • Treatment system design in New Jersey
  • Community centered care system in Turkey
  • Teen suicide prevention program development with the Navajo Nation of New Mexico
  • Police, Treatment, and Community Collaborative
  • Northern Illinois Recovery Center

 

Host of the podcast, Jack O’Donnell, CEO of C4 Recovery Foundation stated, “The experience of creating this series opened my eyes to huge impact and success C4 has had in carrying out its mission to help others. The mere fact C4 launched a program in New Jersey some 30 years ago, that is still running and has now treated over 115k individuals is energizing and inspiring.”
