I’m in a little distracted lately, so I’m sorry for the lack of updates around here. I Will Do Better.
Here’s a link, sent by Ebeneezer Scrooge, which should be of interest:
The Navy has signed a five-year contract with Hazelden to provide online recovery support services for sailors, the Associated Press reported Oct. 3.
The new, $3.25 million program was developed in partnership with Hazelden for the 10,000 patients in the Navy’s Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation Services program.
Also, Stanton Peele has a new post up on Psychology Today, which will give you some ammunition for the good fight: “What percentages of people in recovery are treated or untreated?”
In contrast, here’s a quack in the Desert Sun, trying to stay relevant:
Recovery is the sum of qualities such as honesty, dependability, integrity, loyalty, the desire to help others and a love for fellow man. Recovery is abstinence from alcohol and a sense of serenity. These things will not come with any pill (dry-yes; recovery-no).
