Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Tuesday, readers!

What? Tuesday?

That’s right, you officially have about 48 hours until Valentine’s Day.

(Cue dramatic drum roll.)

Now, I know some of you don’t care for Valentine’s Day.

It was created by Hallmark! There’s too much pressure! Why should we spend just one day showing each other how we feel?!

Fine. I agree with all that most of the time, too.

However, for those of you who do celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’d like to veer off the celebrity-inspired road for just a second to tell you about how you can combine Valentine’s Day and mental health this year.


Twitter Chat: The Fix Tackles Drug Policy in America

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

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.
