This is the blog of a topper from IIT Bombay, and former Regional Delegate (Service Representative) of Narcotics Anonymous, India Region. I have studied and scrutinized the 12 Step program minutely, and seen that the program is really effective only when practiced as psychoanalysis or psychotherapy. This blog aims at helping suffering addicts and alcoholics, and people suffering from mental health problems.
The US CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of January 13, 2012 reported that since 2003 more overdose deaths have involved opioid analgesics than heroin and
cocaine combined. The narcotic opioid analgesic drugs, manufactured by the
pharmaceutical companies, approved by the government and prescribed by
registered medical practitioners, has become the number one killer in the USA. The
crisis is so large that last month USA even had its first National
Rx Drugs Abuse Summit. But the common man is kept in the dark about this
crisis for nearly a decade. And the irony is that the law enforcement agencies
are using the Anti-Narcotics Law to target drug-users but not the
pharmaceutical drug manufacturers and peddlers.
