May 21, 2008 Clean and Sober
Addiction most often refers to drug dependence, or a state of physiological or psychological dependence on a drug that often has damaging effects (encarta, 2004).
Maine had approximately 15,000 documented hospital admissions for drug related problems in 2007. While alcohol abuse and addiction is far more prevalent in hospital data, opiates, marijuana, cocaine and prescription drugs bring many people to desperate situations.
National policies for prevention, interdiction and enforcement are severely challenged by our ongoing epidemic of abuse and addiction. Efforts to help people escape addiction take many forms. Join our dialogue on Wednesday, May 21st at 10:00 AM as we discuss the path to sobriety.
We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
