"Junk in the trunk." Fucking genius.
You, sir, are the bard of barbiturates.
The abstinence model of sex education has nothing to do with abstinence based drug and alcohol treatment programs. Get a clue.
Jubie, shut up so that I can say that first. AWESOME.
Second WTF @2 - Dominic. Totally unrelated things. You make a very disingenous connection. No matter what you think of either issue, the two are unrelated.
@ 1 and 3) Thanks!
@ 2 and 4) I disagree. Sure, abstinence-only will work for some people coming off drugs. It keeps some people from having sex until marriage. But lots of other drug users will taper off, relapse, or seek an environment that isn't abstinence-only to quit. Like good sex education, harm reduction is based in reality, human behavior, and science.
38.9 million people viewed McCain's address to his convention in St. Paul, while 38.4 million watched Obama's speech in Denver, according to the Neilsen ratings.
NIDA has this to say right off the bat: No single treatment is appropriate for all individuals.
this statement would tend to support dominic's argument.
That poor elephant!
Here's the FDA's list.
Ask your doctor if Carac is right for you!
Wait! I mean Kuric. Couric? Canuck?
Everyone slows down to look at a car wreck.
@5 It's true that harm reduction is a complicated issue best viewed through the lens of various sciences. Too bad you didn't reference any studies whatsoever.
@11: for a great starting point see:
Harm Reduction: Pragmatic Strategies for Managing High-Risk Behaviors, edited by G. Alan Marlatt, 1998, The Guilford Press.
It's ten years old, but it is still a great discussion of this issue.
And yeah, what ellarosa said @7. There is no such thing as a one size fits all model for treatment. That's precisely why we have different types of drug treatment
weird, martin sheen spoke at a fundraiser last year for a large seattle nonprofit that focuses on harm reduction.
there is no large Seattle nonprofit that focuses on harm reduction.
There was a medium one (Street Outreach Services), but it no longer exists. Now there's just the People's Harm Reduction Alliance.
And Martin Sheen ain't never done nothing for any of 'em.
