Sometimes things turn out well, sometimes they don't. A guy who had several DUI arrests finally gets sober, and on his way home from rehab is killed by a drunk driver. We tell you the story in this week's Bulletin.
The stigma against those who have problems with drugs or alcohol, however, is a major cultural obstacle in almost every country on earth. The fact that people are willing to acknowledge a problem, and be eager for recovery even in the face of social stigma, is good news.
In this week's Addiction/Recovery eBulletin, we cover everything from Coca-Cola's generous support of anti-drunk driving efforts while simultaneously supporting opposition to drunk driving laws, myth busting ideas about alcohol, important tips for dating someone in recovery, women in Iran getting clean in a country that doesn't have alcohol, but plenty of Rx drugs. to Mayor Bob Ford's enthusiastic response to going into recovery, highlights of the Reel Recovery Film Festival, and lots more....no snarky comments this week from me..just a big hype to read the bulletin and support the efforts of WRITERS IN TREATMENT!
