A very insightful (and easy to watch) primer on addiction (5 min).



I take no responsibility for the scientific accuracy.

I'm just trying to figure out if this is a bash Amudim thread or a handwringing what shall we do thread. Suicide, along with its causes, mental illness and addiction, have always been swept under the rug like molestation.

Amudim is actively trying to prevent suicides. Whether the number of deaths from suicide or unintentional overdose is overstated (and i believe it is understated) is immaterial. This is not a fund-raising gimmick. Its to raise awareness.

I have firsthand knowledge of some of their activities. They help people find therapists and subsidize therapy. Direct struggling addicts to people with experience in recovery.

So, yes there is a need for yet another organization. At least one that takes addiction and mental illness seriously.

Disclaimer: I am not in any way shape or form involved in running this organization.

This week had a cover story/article about Tzvi Gluck, founder of Amudim. IMO it was very poorly written.

You can probably email them for it.
I've gotten some articles from Ami in the past.
