Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Frank Voce is the founder and president of Reps for Responders—a non-profit organization with the aim of helping first responders who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or addiction. The group promotes three pathways to “recovery,” which include physical activity, proper nutrition and peer support. Frank graduated from the police academy in 2015 and began serving as a policeman in New York.
In this conversation, Dr. Tro, Dr. Brian, and Frank talk about Frank’s struggles with alcoholism, anxiety, and depression resulting in large part from his experience as a cop in New York, Frank’s experience checking into and being in the psych ward, how Frank came to terms with his alcoholism and began walking the road to recovery, Frank’s spiritual awakening, how Frank began researching and getting involved in helping other police officers who have struggled with anxiety, depression, and alcoholism, the sorry state of psychiatric care that Frank experienced, the importance of diet, exercise, and community for successful recovery, and the history of/services offered by Reps for Responders.
