Addiction

“… statistically speaking, more than 100 Americans whose names we’ll never know died of drug overdose on the same day that Mr. Hoffman did. Overdose is not a Hollywood story. It’s an American story about an epidemic that’s affecting all layers of American society.”

Did you know that addiction is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States? I didn’t.

This wonderful article in today’s Washington Post offers us the chance to listen to noted psychiatrist and mental health policy expert Keith Humphreys discuss addiction. Only confronting the sad news will make it possible to change it.
