Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
The Philadelphia Inquirer sat down with Livengrin CEO Richard Pine to talk addiction and treatment at Livengrin Foundation.
"People have a hard time grasping that telling an addict who has a full blown, diagnosable illness of addiction to just stop drinking or taking drugs is like telling you or me to stop breathing for the next hour."
The natural body response is, "I've got to take a breath." [For the addict], the brain chemistry is saying, "I need a fix. I need a drink."
