Join Our Holiday Twitter Debate, November 17!

By The Fix staff 11/16/11

The Fix and Phoenix House are joining forces to host a holiday Twitter debate Thursday. The most important ingredient will be you.

Join the debate!

The Fix (@_TheFix) is once again teaming up with Phoenix House (@PhoenixHouse) to host a massive Twitter debate, open to all. It takes place on Thursday, November 17 from 4 pm-5pm EST. The timely subject area will be "Addiction and the Holidays." The holidays are a time that can pose a threat to anyone trying to stay sober. And what role do societal norms and the media play in all this? We'll be discussing the highs and lows of the season and its effects on addicts. Questions will explore how the holidays can trigger an unexpected relapse, why the holidays have become so associated with substance abuse, and much more.

To make sure your views are heard, simply log in to Twitter and search for the hashtag #drugchat to see what people are saying. Be sure to include the #drugchat hashtag in all your tweets, too. We look forward to joining you online!
