I want to say hello to all the members of ICAADA and tell you that I am excited to have the opportunity to serve ICAADA as Executive Director. I look forward to working with ICAADA Board of Directors and members, MHAI leadership, and all of the other ICAADA stakeholders to help ICAADA maintain and develop its role as a leader in the addiction arena.
For those of you not familiar with me, I have worked in the addiction field for over 40 years providing training, auditing clinical services, developing programs and policy, and advocating for recovery resources on the local, state and national levels. I have had the honor of working with the ICAADA founders and leaders since 1974 to provide counselor training and development. One of my most cherished moments was being selected as the Dan Crowe Lifetime Recovery Advocate for Indiana in 2009.
I have a collegial work style with an open door policy and believe in responding to phone calls and email within 24 hours. In the coming months I hope to travel around the state to meet with you and other ICAADA members and stakeholders to find out your concerns and resources. I plan to work with the ICAADA Board and other key stakeholders to develop goals and strategies to help ensure that ICAADA thrives in the coming years as it promotes the interests of addiction counselors and other members of the addiction recovery workforce.
For ICAADA to continue its tradition of playing a key role in the Indiana addiction workforce development and advocacy, we will need an engaged and active membership and Board. So I encourage you to stay involved or get involved with ICAADA activities.
Abuse of the homemade narcotic known as "Krokodil" was first reported in Siberia, then spread throughout Russia. Now it may have arrived in the United States.
PHOENIX – A dangerous flesh-eating narcotic known as "Krokodil," or crocodile, in Russia where it emerged more than a decade ago may have made its first appearance in the United States, medical experts in Arizona said Thursday.
Toxicologists at the Banner Good Samaritan Poison and Drug Information Center in Phoenix say they have been consulted on a "handful of cases" of patients suspected of abusing Krokodil, so-called for the scaly and green appearance of sores that form on the user's skin.
New data reinforces the concern that prescription drug abuse is fueling the recent increase in heroin use in the U.S. The report, released in August by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, found that people ages 12 to 49 who had abused prescription pain relievers were 19 times more likely to have begun using heroin within the last year than others in that age group.
The report also shows that four out of five recent heroin initiates (79.5%) had previously abused prescription pain relievers.
