Recovery Cartel

What is the Recovery Cartel

Everyone knows the drug cartels drive addiction. Our vision is a similar aggressive approach toward driving recovery. Webster’s defines a cartel as: “a combination of independent commercial or industrial enterprises designed to limit competition or fix prices”.

We intend to approach addiction the way the cartels approach business. Relentlessly, tirelessly, aggressively, and without apology.

It is our goal to bring light to the secrets that keep our system sick. It is our goal to provide all sides of the story. We have no agenda other than the eradication of addiction.

The Recovery Cartel Podcast

Husband, father, CEO, and Recovery Cartel host, Rich Jones discusses the book Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America by author William L. White with his wife, Melissa.

Melissa Jones is a boundary setting ninja and family recovery expert. Her personal experience and unwavering support of the Recovery Cartel has been integral to the mission. Her story embodies an all too common experience for the spouse married to someone in active addiction. Melissa and Rich have been married for 25 years. 

They have been able to negotiate the challenges of addiction and the marriage has survived, despite some very difficult moments. Melissa provides tangible advice and her family recovery experience is a source of hope; especially for spouses as they work through a loved one’s active addiction. 

To win the war on addiction we need to change the rules of engagement!
