ADDICTION: A ‘Meeting’ of Minds Online Discussion with Dalal Akoury, MD

Participating in one of the many online and anonymous forums, message boards and blogs that discuss addiction and the ancillary medical conditions that accompany it are highly valuable tools for the addict and family members. An added bonus to the daily give-and-take of empathy, compassion and feeling that one is not alone, are the, resources, research and informational articles that members share in their postings. As we know, addiction is not a typically ‘friendly’ condition; that is it is not a popular topic. Therefore ‘friending’ someone via the internet based solely on addiction may not be the best first step. But being able to open up namelessly via other communication options on the web offers huge opportunities for help and healing. Since addiction is a societal problem, it is best when those of us affected by it know of at least one place we can visit during our own private time and share our experiences.

Shattered Lives Radio: Crime and Addiction with Dalal Akoury, MD

Listen to Shattered Lives Radio Statistics show that most modern-day crime is either a direct result of addiction, or indirectly a result of mental health and addiction related circumstances. Once incarcerated most inmates are not properly assessed for treatment options. In 2005, federal, state and local governments spent $74 billion on incarceration, court proceedings, probation and parole for substance-involved adult and juvenile offenders, and less than 1% of that amount—$632 million—on prevention and treatment, according to CASAColumbia’s research. The report found that only 11% of all inmates with addiction received any treatment during their incarceration. The report found that if all inmates who needed treatment and aftercare received such services, the nation would break even in a year if just over 10% remained substance-free, crime-free and employed. Thereafter, for each former inmate who remained substance-free, crime-free and employed, the nation would reap an economic benefit of $90,953 per year. Shattered Lives Radio will discuss the many forms of addiction with guest, Dalal Akoury, MD of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, and an addiction recovery treatment specialist. …
