My Interview with Director of National Drug Control Policy, Michael Botticelli

By June 7, 2016Uncategorized

Interviewing Director Michael Botticelli was a thrill for me. He is a person in longterm recovery working tirelessly to improve the lives of people who have been afflicted with the dis-ease of addiction. His mission is our mission. We are fortunate to live in a time where we can experience the dawning of a new consciousness about recovery from addiction. This is about HOPE!

May we be inspired each day on our path to wholeness. May we live out the promise of recovery in our life. We can do this. We will do this. We must do this.

Director Botticelli and I spoke about the state of addiction in America today. As Director of National Drug Control Policy, Mr. Botticelli leads the Obama Administration’s drug policy efforts, which are based on a balanced public health and public safety approach. The Administration has advanced historic drug policy reforms and innovations in prevention, criminal justice, treatment, and recovery.

Mr. Botticelli has personally been in long-term recovery for more than 26 years. He has encouraged the millions of Americans in recovery today to make their voices heard and confront the stigma associated with substance use disorders, which often keeps individuals from seeking and receiving treatment.
