By |July 9, 2021|Categories: Editorials|

Motivation behind addiction treatment centers

By |December 18, 2020|Categories: Editorials|

“In and out of rehab,” inspires visions of dollar signs for many addiction treatment centers. It also represents a sort of mantra, when speaking to addicts or their families. Treatment centers notoriously fail to treat their patients with a combination of physiological and psychological solutions. These patients don’t want a spa they want help. Many addicts never chose this behavior; it is thrust upon them at conception and materializes [...]

Podcast advertising

By |April 30, 2019|Categories: Editorials|

Major advertisers are purchasing fewer and fewer broadcast radio ads, but that doesn’t mean audio programming is fading from the culture. Podcasts — radio’s younger, on-demand sibling — are swiftly gaining popularity with many of the demographics that marketers desire most. Why is podcast advertising so popular? For one, many people listen to them on smartphones, so episodes can tag along on morning commutes, midday walks and evening jogs. Plus, [...]

By |April 30, 2019|Categories: Editorials|

Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) ad business has gained a lot of attention over the last couple of years as it has gone from practically inconsequential to a $10 billion segment. But investors eyeing the "Other" revenue line in the online retailer's recent first-quarter earnings report may be disappointed with the 36% growth (on a neutral-foreign-exchange-rate basis) when compared to growth of 132% in the first three months of last year. Granted, Amazon's [...]

Addiction rehab is broken

By |April 2, 2018|Categories: Editorials|

My time in addiction rehab for an opioid addiction left me humiliated and desperate to know why my friends were dying. Now a wave of app developers is trying to do things differently. My dad’s company had season tickets to the White Sox. On muggy Midwest summer days, we’d go as a family—always sitting in the same seats, 25 rows above first base.

Court to force drug treatment

By |March 2, 2018|Categories: Editorials|

A judge can issue an arrest warrant if the addict dodges evaluations or the hearing, forcing drug treatment. And if the addict refuses to go to court-ordered treatment or walks out, the judge can enforce a hefty ultimatum — rehabilitation or jail. If they relapse after completing treatment, the loved one can file a new Casey's Law petition. Relapses are common and can happen even after years of sobriety. But [...]
