Social Media and Addiction

Much credit has been given to social media and the Arab Spring and all the upheaval with the status quo in the Arab world.  People have connected and used the truth and their desires for freedom to organize in effective movements.  Perhaps someday we can have a similar uprising against the pain of addiction to drugs and alcohol.  Maybe we can have a real war on drugs from the people themselves instead of law enforcement.

The purpose of this war is to actually help people instead of arresting them and putting them in jail.  It would find ways for people to get drug and alcohol rehab treatment for low cost or free.  Maybe with facebook we can some how stop blaming people and start helping them have a better life.  Maybe we can make the lack of real knowledge about addiction the enemy.  Forget about the dealers.  Make helping people our goal and target.
