Rep. Patrick Kennedy held a press conference yesterday, his first since his treatment episode. It’s too bad that he’s the most prominant face of addiction and recovery in the national political scene. I wish him well, but he’s not very inspiring. Paul Wellstone was a big loss for advocacy efforts. Jim Ramstad seems like he might be a more effective advocate if he got more attention.

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work. Views expressed here are my own. Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time. View all posts by Jason Schwartz
