- We can talk freely about recovery in a way that feels less performative. Ya know, no TWEET AT MY STORY. Or MEME IT! Whatever. Let’s exist without all that.
- I should add that we’re not above billboard advertising. If you came here because you saw our two giant-ass billboards in Los Angeles and thought, “Hmm, that seems like a dumb way to promote a recovery website,” well you’re right and I agree. But ahem-ahem-ahem, dubious sirs and madams! We’re actually using the billboards to promote the website to get you to sign up for the newsletter. Now that is some next-level marketing genius-ishness.
- Interact with other drug and alcohol addicts not like you, but also just like you.
- It’s more personal. I don’t know why, it just is. And it’s working for us.
- Oh and for potential writers: Be part of Inverse Pitching and get paid for your submissions sometimes. Every once in a while I crowdsource for stories and pay for the ones we publish, like these. Sometimes people accept it, others suggest we put the payment towards a charitable organization. Whatever works for you. No pressure.
- The charitable organization we’ve chosen to partner with is the Katal Center. More on that later.
- Just trust me. It’ll be a better experience and we’ll get more good things done there. Screw this dirty old internet racket.
- You ready? Sign up here. Thanks for your continued support.

Here are some questions we pose to our resident advocacy professional, Executive Editor Joe Schrank. Joe’s been a social worker for 25 years. He’s also president of Remedy Recovery and co-founder of The Fix. Our topic today: America's booze problem. According to the National Institute of Health's death scoreboard, Alcohol is beating Opioids, 88,000 to 40,000, but we haven't declared it a crisis just yet.
