What do you Need to Succeed?

The current government dir. of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) or the “Drug Czar” is a person with “real life” experience in the recovery world both as a person in recovery and one who dedicated their life to helping others get recovery.  His appointment as the new Dir of ONDCP may bring a new perspective to “the war on drugs”.  Past Czars have had military &/or political backgrounds, so we may be on the verge of a new perspective in fighting the drug epidemic in this country.

I don’t believe a person has to be an “addict in recovery” in order to help those find their recovery, but I do believe that fresh eyes looking at problems may bring fresh solutions.
