"We knew there was a market for a weekly digest of news, breakthroughs and more,” said Leonard Buschel, creator of the Addiction/Recovery eBulletin, “but the immediate positive response exceeded our expectations.”
In the first six months, the Addiction/Recovery eBulletin reached 11,000 weekly email recipients, and became the most referred to, linked, and talked about information and entertainment resource in the recovery industry.
“It’s great fun,” commented Burl Barer, Edgar Award winning author of The Saint. “The publisher may be sober, but the eBulletin is never dry. The diversity of sources is wonderful. People link to it constantly on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.”
Categories include: Addiction Epidemic, Inspirational Stories, Rehab Industry News, Educational Events, Scientific and Medical Studies, Hard News, Legal and Governmental Issues, Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-Step Groups, Obituaries, Big Pharma, and Pop Culture. Also included are a wide variety of critic’s responses to recovery related books, television and film.
The growth and reputation of the Addiction/Recovery eBulletin has already resulted in eager sponsors and the bulletin’s own website, http://www.addictionrecoveryebulletin.org. “Our tagline is ‘That Was The Week That Was.’ No old news or last month’s headlines. Only stories from the previous week,” explained Buschel, who also co-founded Writers in Treatment, the non-profit responsible for the international Reel Recovery Film Festivals. “Our audience includes treatment centers, educators, counselors, researchers, clinicians, the sober community, entertainers – anyone interested in Addiction/Recovery that can use our eBulletin to generate discussion.”
The celebrity stories covered are neither exploitive nor judgmental. “We include respectful coverage of public celebrities’ personal experiences. Some are dealing with the adverse effects of excessive indulgence,” said Buschel, “and others are celebrating victory in recovery, one day at a time. It’s only part of what we cover every week in the Addiction/Recovery eBulletin.”
Among the advocacy organizations referenced in the publication are Shatterpoof.org, Faces and Voices of Recovery, NCADD (National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence.) “Another cool thing about the eBulletin and website,” said Buschel, “is that we are embedding or linking to important and controversial videos by such stellar individuals as Dr. Gabor Maté, author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction, Dr. Carl Hart, Professor of Neurobiology at Columbia University, and actor/recovery advocate Russell Brand.”
