The World Drugs report for 2012 is out and it shows that 230 million people around the world – 1 in 20 of us – took illicit drugs in the last year. The report also says that problem drug users, mainly heroin – and cocaine-dependent people number about 27 million, roughly 0.6% of the world adult population. That’s 1 in every 200 people. The report is published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and is full of fascinating stats – we’ve extracted some of the key ones for you in this visualization, created by Andy Cotgreave of Tableau.

Presented by William “Bill” White October 18, 2011; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at Dawn Farm in Ypsilanti, Michigan. I had to travel a distance to see Bill this evening and it was well worth it. Many know that I consider Bill White to be a mentor and I am fascinated by his breadth of knowledge of Addiction and Recovery in America and abroad. Here he discusses history of addiction and treatment in America and the new Recovery Movement.

The Anonymous People

This is a story that is worth telling. The Anonymous People is a grassroots movement to get people in recovery to advocate for others that are still out there suffering from the disease of addiction. It basically scolds us in recovery to say that; “By Our Silence, We Let Others Define Us – Susan Rook” I attended the Celebrate Recovery walk on September 15th on Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan. There I met Pat Taylor from Faces and Voices of Recovery, Gil Kerlikowske Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Ben Jones from NCADD of Detroit and others who came out to Walk for Recovery. We can share this story, we owe it to our fellow addict to spread this story. Please watch; “The Anonymous People.” Spread the word, Share the Story.

This song is sung by Johnny Cash and could describe addiction to opiates. He talks about the needle tearing the hole; the old familiar sting, and describes the destruction that is caused by addiction. What a haunting melody.
