    Default California Alcohol and Drug Educators (CAADE) Endorses THR and E-cigarettes

    Source: email from Fr. Jack Kearney, Professor of Human Services and Addiction Studies,Cypress College, Loyola Marymount University

    I am pleased to announce that the California Association for Alcohol and Drug Educators (CAADE) has formally endorsed the use of THR and electronic cigarettes. To my knowledge this is the first major organization in the addiction treatment world to take such a stand, and I will send this on to other similar groups and ask them for similar support.


    I believe it is a small but important step as this represents support from experts in the addiction profession rather than amateur opinions from groups who take money from the pharmaceutical industry and who seem to be more interested in fighting smoking than helping smokers.
    The specific policy statement and description of CAADE is below.


    (My original motion used the word "smoking" rather than "tobacco", but to get it passed I had to accept a bit of a compromise.)

    The California Association for Alcohol & Drug Educators (CAADE) supports efforts by the addiction treatment community to utilize its treatment expertise in developing tobacco cessation tools that include both abstinence-based and harm-reduction models including the use of electronic cigarettes.


    CAADE accredits addiction studies programs in over 40 colleges and universities in California, Arizona and Nevada. It also issues the highest level of addiction counselor certification in California, and currently represents more than 6000 counselors, college faculty members and students.





    It's a start.

    Tip of the iceberg? Maybe some others who have been keeping their heads down due to BP and the alphabet groups will come out of hiding now. For once I can agree with something started on the left coast.

    This is great! I love the "amateur opinions" line.

    In light of the recent push to ban e cigs on college campuses nationwide this is indeed a breath of fresh air. Lets hope it spreads quickly, is aggressively promoted by these professionals and has a powerful impact on the current thinking promoted ceaselessly and ingenuously by the paid shills of the pharmaceutical houses.

    So in short, this means that addiction counselors will be openly advocating e-cigs for those looking to quit smoking?

    It's also good that it comes from the heart of ANTZ scientific propaganda, California. Unfortunately, I'm willing to bet U Cal, SF is not one of the CAADE universities.
