This site is about fresh perspectives.

One of the first things people realize when they enter the realm of drug/alcohol addiction and recovery is… things aren’t always as they seem. Things aren’t the way they are supposed to be. There is no black and white. Almost everything “depends” on where you’ve been, what you already know or didn’t know.

For one person in recovery, discipline and simple truths may be life saving. For another, new information — enlightenment — may open the mind to new perspectives and fuel recovery. For caregivers and relatives looking to understand a world they didn’t know personally, it can seem like Alice’s Wonderland:  strange and often scary.

Through, we explore the drug and alcohol issues of our times. We’re on the lookout for fresh perspectives,  and hope to shine light on what really matters.

We only intend to point to possibilities. It’s the reader’s job to think. And we hope you’ll use the comments feature to express your thoughts, so others can grow from your perspectives. We’re not taking sides, but we hope to highlight all sides.

About our Leadership:

JohnsAddiction is led by a few people deep in the world  of addiction and recovery, working every day to help.  Everyone involved in this web site is guided by the vision expressed here — that we’re observing and  learning and trying to make connections that could lead to increased understanding of addiction and all that it involves.

Some of the features we’d like to highlight:

At the top of every page you can LIKE, SHARE, or otherwise circulate awareness of our pages, using the social media icons.  We also provide social media hooks throughout the many articles on the site. We hope you’ll use them.  We totally appreciate it.
