To mark National Recovery Month, The Fix is teaming up with Phoenix House to host a mass Twitter debate today (September 21) from 3-4pm EST. The wide-ranging theme is Different Paths to Recovery and we'll cover areas as varied as therapies and fellowships, harm reduction, spirituality, and how recovery itself should be defined. We've lined up a host of experts in the field to participate and share their views—we've linked to a few of their Twitter handles below, as well as some of our own, so you can check them out and follow them. So how do you join in? It's easy, as long as you have a Twitter account—and if you don't, it's not too late to get one. Make sure you're following @_thefix and @PhoenixHouse, then tweet your responses to the questions you see appearing on your feed—please remember to write #drugchat in each tweet you send, so others can follow the conversation. This is just one of the ways in which The Fix is becoming more interactive—we want to hear your views!
