Dawn Farm is a program with unique history, point of view and voice. We know that recovery is possible for even the most troubled addicts–addiction is a treatable illness. We also know that media coverage, research bias, and stigma often obscure this.
This blog started as an email list of articles sent to Dawn Farm staff a few times a week. Our thinking was that if our staff read 10% of the articles we would have some of the most informed staff in the country. (This is still the audience we have in mind as we choose what to post.) The list grew to people outside of Dawn Farm and we kept getting requests for articles we sent months earlier, so a blog seemed to be the natural solution.
