Psych Central


The Fix, an excellent (in my opinion) website about addiction and recovery that often tackles celebrity substance abuse issues is teaming up with the national nonprofit addiction treatment organization Phoenix House later this afternoon to talk about something that’s been on all our mind’s since Colorado and Washington pretty much told the world, “Yeah, we do what we want” and legalized pot.

Drug policy. Specifically, legalizing drugs.

Not just marijuana, either. The Fix and Phoenix House are set to talk about everything from heroin and cocaine to mass incarceration and mandatory vs. optional addiction treatment.

In addition to The Fix and Phoenix House staff members, expect to see tweets from various addiction specialists, journalists, and other drug rehab facilities.

You want in on this?
