We were all shocked by the news yesterday of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffmans death due to heroin overdose. Hoffman is but the public face of a real and true public health problem. Addiction is a disease and not a moral failing. If you need help, please don’t hesitate. http://www.aa.org/,http://www.na.org/, http://www.slaafws.org/. Let me add that it has been the friends i’ve known who are in recovery who are some of the most compassionate, wise and awesome people i’ve ever known.
For Phillip Seymour Hoffman
