In each issue of my newsletter, Rx Addict Action, I include links to websites of interest in a column called The Blogosphere. These sites may be news, blogs or websites of other people afflicted by addiction, support sites, government hearings on the subject, etc. Here are a few of those links that I’ve collected from past newsletters for this new year.
