Guests

  • Dr. Morris Chafetz president of the Health Education Foundation and former director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
  • Mathea Falco Drug Strategies
  • Stacia Murphy president of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence; in recovery from alcoholism since 1976
