Who’s in Favor of Addiction and Death?

The best kept secret in the world of addiction treatment and prevention is that we already know how to reduce drug use, addiction, and drug related deaths to a mere fraction of their current rates.

Other countries in the world have already done so, but the United States stubbornly refuses to follow suit. What’s worse, the United States in its arrogance claims to have the only evidence-based answers to the problems in spite of the fact that drug use, addiction, and overdose death have been on a steady climb in the US for the past 20 years as a direct result of the drug war and American style addiction treatment. And worst of all, the United States wants to force the rest of the world to follow in its path of failure, despite the fact that some other countries in the world have already solved their drug problems.
