Government primate centers

Living out of cramped hotel rooms and having limited access to a laptop while on my vacation (current stop Vancouver, home of the homeless and the urban grocery cart), I am itching to blog again. It'll have to be short and to the point, so ......

Here's a great article by Martha Rosenberg about the marketing of the dual diagnosis, entitled Out of New Diseases and Blank Checks from Insurers, Pharma Targets Alcoholics.

Pharma is mongering the "dual diagnosis" of alcoholics and addicts--they have both an addiction and a psychiatric illne$$ --with so much unbranded advertising and Madison Avenue spin, nationally known major rehab centers are telling their patients they have "co-occurring disorders," in a repudiation of basic recovery theory.
