New Updates and Upcoming Posts

Thanks for sticking around, for those of you who still follow the blog, love the old content, and like the things we've written. In 2010, a lot has happened in the addiction and recovery field that we need to comment on, and due to some new twists and turns, the posting has (to say the least) fallen off a little bit. We'll be back with a vengeance, and with some new features. So here we go.

In February of this year, I launched a new company, Ferguson Behavioral Health Consulting. After working in the field for the last few years, I decided it was about time for me to take a little risk and go out on my own. Needless to say, it's been a lot of work. So, with the support of a few key people (namely Jaywalker Lodge, PCH Treatment Center, and Safe Harbor Treatment Center for Women), I was able to incorporate my love for seeing people get to the appropriate treatment provider as well as branding and outreach relations. You can also follow my new company on Twitter and be a fan on Facebook.

So this year, along with commentary on what's happening in the news of addiction (look for a post regarding our friend Lindsay Lohan over the weekend), I'll also be writing about events I attend, interesting speakers, and revolutions in the industry. As part of the broader scope of addiction recovery, I hope that together we can continue changing lives and helping people get better. Let me know if you have any suggestions about anything you'd like to see or see more written about.

Here's a video from one of my consulting clients, Jaywalker Lodge:
