New Podcast, featuring our Dr. Marc Kern
Dr. Adi Jaffe and Dr. Marc Kern (an MM Founder and member of the Moderation Management Board of Directors) join Dr. Drew for a discussion about addiction and the slightly different ways that they approach recovery and management of the disease. Later they take calls from listeners on opiate addiction, methamphetamine dependency turning to alcohol dependency and why the body has THC receptors.
Their wide-ranging discussion includes Moderation Management, Dr. Kern's book (co-author) Responsible Drinking, and a doctor's perspective on addiction and recovery.

"The Hemmy Award" for 2012 goes to George Clooney!
Moderation Management's First Annual "Hemmy Award" (named after Ernest Hemingway) has been given to the actor George Clooney during the "Golden Globes", in recognition of his public statements in support of a real-world approach to problems with Alcohol, including:
"I've made a little New Years deal that I wouldn't be drinking for a while. I'm giving my liver a chance to catch back up."
Mr. Clooney made it clear that it is smart and healthy to step away from drinking from time to time, without implying permanent abstinence must be the next step. His personal statement has consequently made him a role model, advocating for a normal point of view toward alcohol, and that speaking out about one's own drinking should not be seen as a stepping stone to ruining careers or needing rehab.
