Adding Fuel to the Fire:
The stigma of alcoholism, treatment and recovery
A not-so-silent thief makes off with $226 billion, every year, robbing the economy, flooding hospitals, clogging courts. And landing million-dollar spots in the year's biggest televised sports events.

"It" is alcohol. Not terrorism. Not obesity. Not cancer or diabetes or Ebola or any other disease. It's alcohol. We'll spend more to combat these other scourges that cause less turmoil and financial damage while alcohol rules the roost, the clubhouse and the corner office.
The third-leading cause of preventable death and illness stays under the radar because of good advertising and bad stigma. Its purveyors are proclaimed as charitable kings. Those who use it and discover alcohol has health and social consequences, are labeled as villains, kill-joys, weak, and morally off.

The stigma of alcohol use disorders, treatment and recovery keeps the discussion of what alcohol does to you behind the wish-driven chatter about what it does for you. The tipping point has passed. The status quo: No longer sustainable or acceptable. Adding Fuel to the Fire examines how families and communities feed the stigma even while it holds them back, how stigma has become a barrier to many who want help, and what to do about it. From Scott Stevens, the creator of the Alcohology app and author of What the Early Worm Gets, and the award-winning, Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud. Scott will read from his new book and sign copies for those who wish to purchase.
