Tyler touting teetotaling...
Steven Tyler joins other great musicians to rally at UNITE, an addiction awareness rally in Washington to begin a shift in attention towards treatment as well as opportunities for those reintegrating whether the incarceration system or housing. Subjects such as treatment rather than punitive efforts, naloxone (narcan) for heroin overdose implementations and many other engaging themes will be the focus of UNITE, not ignoring the largest one: there is an epidemic and how we have placed attention to it hasn't been working.
An epidemic calls for a change and we congratulate public figures for supporting the efforts. Thank you Steven Tyler.
Thank you Obama for your policy on drugs. First time its been clear:
Science demonstrates that addiction is a disease of the brain—a disease that can be prevented and treated, and from which people can recover. The Administration's drug policy reflects this understanding by emphasizing prevention and access to treatment over incarceration, pursing "smart on crime" rather than "tough on crime" approaches to drug-related offenses, and support for early health interventions designed to break the cycle of drug use, crime, incarceration, and re-arrest.
Heres to great beginnings, excited to see the first implementations...
