Randy Anderson Makes a BOLD Recovery

Randy is a person living in long term recovery and what that means to him is, he hasn’t used drugs, alcohol, or any mood-altering substance since January 9, 2005. After receiving the life-saving gifts of treatment and recovery, Randy completed his A.S. degree in addiction counseling at Minneapolis College in 2015 and worked as a full-time counselor for 2 years at RS EDEN/Eden House Recovery Services – the very same treatment facility where he was once a client. Randy served as a Board of Directors member for the Steve Rummler Hope Network, the organization responsible for passing Steve’s Law in 2014. In February 2018 Randy stepped down as a board member and was hired as the full-time Overdose Prevention Manager. As a nationally recognized advocate for recovery and reform, Randy also serves on the board of directors for the MN Second Chance Coalition. There he was given the opportunity to testify during the 2015/2016 legislative session in front of several legislative committees during the drug sentencing reform hearings. Because of his testimony – and that of others – MN had the most significant change in drug sentencing in nearly three decades. He is grateful to know because of those sentencing guideline changes, approximately 700 less people will be incarcerated yearly because they have the disease of addiction. Randy completed his B.A. degree in human services at Bethel University and lives with his wife, dog and cat in Golden Valley, MN. In March 2019 Randy decided to follow is passion and venture out on his own and started Bold North Recovery and Consulting.

Stigma keeps police officers from seeking support

Police officers and other First Responders are put in life-or-death situations every day. Over time, the emotional toll can be so significant that it leads to mental health challenges. A no-brainer approach would be to have programs and counselors in place to support these brave men and women. Unfortunately, the programs in place are rarely used due to stigma. Officers would be very hesitant to tell anyone in the organization what was really going on in their heads for fear of losing their job or their credibility. Rich and Sheila Goode, a former police officer, discuss the need for support that sits OUTSIDE of the organization. The officers will feel more comfortable asking for help if it’s done in private. Listen as Sheila describes what it’s like behind the scenes for First Responders and what would really help them get the mental health support they deserve.

Goldfinch Health is making surgery forgettable

Goldfinch Health has a unique approach to surgery that claims to cut recovery time in half, reduce the use of opioids, and save on healthcare costs. Their method is patient-centric as patients receive a nurse navigator that will be with them every step of the way.  Goldfinch is involved in everything from pre-surgery diet and education to non-opioid pain management, to minimally invasive surgery.  Listen as Brand describe the process and how it is going to save money and ease the burden on patients.

Together with co-founder and COO John Greenwood, he feverishly worked to bring a higher standard of care in surgery and recovery to life, founding Goldfinch Health in 2018.

With over 15 years of leadership experience in creating new healthcare solutions, Brand has worked to bring high-quality approaches to payers, employers, healthcare providers, and patients.
