The Addiction Medicine Forum

Addiction Medicine Forum

Addiction Science
Research forum & resources on the neurobiology of addiction. is a project supported by the Wheeler Center for the Neurobiology of Addiction at UCSF. Our plan is to leverage the ease of publication and communication provided by the internet to facilitate collaborative science. The field of the Neurobiology of Addiction is particularly amenable to cross-disciplinary analyses - molecular, cellular and systems neuroscientists at one end, clinicians and clinical researchers at the other. We hope that by bringing discussions and opinions from a variety of sources to an open forum, further discussions and brainstorming will ensue. Again, by bringing together a variety of resources on methods and technologies, a database of people in the field, and various learning tools we can aid in lowering the barrier to the initiation of meaningful research. Finally, a major impediment in the development of treatment for substance abuse is the lack of communication between clinicians and basic science researchers. We hope to help bridge this gap, again by facilitating communication through an open forum.
Addiction Treatment Forum
Addiction Treatment Forum has reported on substance abuse and addiction therapies, research, news, and events of interest to both healthcare professionals and patients since 1992. Although many treatment options and healthcare topics of concern are regularly discussed, an important focus is on methadone maintenance for opioid-addiction treatment. This website features extensive resources, such as: current and past issues of AT Forum newsletters, special research reports, FAQs, regularly updated news, notices of upcoming events, and much more.

Her good friend, Ambassador Leonard Firestone, encouraged Mrs. Ford to pursue her dream and in 1982, they co-founded the nonprofit Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California. From its earliest days, the Betty Ford Center has treated women and men suffering from chemical dependency. The Center has always saved 50% of its space for women and 50% for men. Women and men reside in separate halls. The program lasts between 28 to 32 days. All family members are deeply affected when one family member is chemically dependent. Family members are offered support and education through our five-day Family Program. The Children's Program is for children ages 7 to 12 who are not themselves addicted, but are living with chemically dependent family members. Visit our Kids' Corner to find out more.

Founded in 1961, the Center was formed to deal with problems associated with drug and alcohol abuse. The Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  For the individual substance abuser, problems can mount up quickly. Alcoholics and drug addicts often confront — to name a few — ruined marriages and friendships, lost driver's licenses, severe legal problems, foreclosures and repossessions, lost employment. The addict's life can easily become unmanageable and, without outside intervention, may spin completely out of control. Fortunately, the Center is here to help. Using a combination of traditional and innovative approaches to treatment, the Center has aided thousands in northern Minnesota. In 1998 alone, Center programs combined for 4,407 admissions. That adds up to a lot of improved lives in 40 years of service.

Partnership for Recovery
Since 1997, the PFR has worked to increase education and awareness of addictive disease among Members of Congress and the public and eliminate barriers to treatment for the 22 million Americans struggling with addiction. The majority of health plans say they cover the costs of providing addiction treatment for their beneficiaries. In reality, families and individuals needing treatment are often told by their insurance plan they will only pay for part of the care or won’t pay for it at all: of the 70% of Americans insured by private health plans, few receive benefits for addiction on par with other diseases.

Clean from all mood changing and mind altering drugs, we live a day at a time, and are enjoying every moment of it. We are based in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), India. In keeping with our anonymity we shall refrain from naming ourselves. We got together, to work on this recovery website with a single purpose - of giving away what we have been given in order to keep it. We haven't spared any effort - although we were restricted by our own abilities - in our attempt to put up a comprehensive recovery website, which would have a little something for everyone. Whether we have been successful, in our endeavour, only you, dear fellow members can decide. Until then, we shall take solace from a quote of our Basic Text : "The full fruit of a labour of love lives in the harvest, and that always comes in its right season…"  If you have a drug problem and have a desire to stop using drugs, we can help. We have been through the pain of addiction and we believe that one addict can best understand and help another addict. We are witnesses, to the joy of recovery, that can be found in Narcotics Anonymous. Addiction is not a simple disease, but it has a simple solution! We have found it. You can too!
