WVAADC, LEGISLATIVE LEADERS, AND CRC HEALTH GROUP CEO DR. BARRY KARLIN TO JOIN

CHARLESTON, W.Va., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four-Star General Barry McCaffrey (ret.), the former White House Drug Czar and now West Point Professor and terrorism/drug policy expert in the national media, will spearhead a Feb. 13-14 West Virginia Advocacy Action Day to spotlight the need for additional drug and alcohol treatment, conducted safely and effectively. According to McCaffrey, there is an enormous "treatment gap" across the nation in which 142,000 West Virginians and 21 million Americans "need but are not receiving treatment," in figures reported by HHS. In addition, teen abuse of addictive prescription drugs has more than tripled the past five years, McCaffrey stated -- and opiates like OxyContin have become "the new heroin."

The Advocacy in Action day is being hosted and organized by the West Virginia Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (WVAADC--the Association for Addiction Professionals). Schedule of main events:

Wednesday evening, Feb. 13, from 5:30-7:30 PM: Gen. McCaffrey will join Governor Joe Manchin at a reception at the Charleston Marriott (200 Lee Street East), together with WVAADC leaders, House delegates and senators, and West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) top officials.

Thursday morning, February 14, at 8:30 AM: Gen. McCaffrey will address legislators in the House Chamber, State Capitol, hosted by Chair Don Perdue and members of the House Health Committee, and Chair Carrie Webster and members of the House Judiciary Committee, together with members of the Senate Health and Judiciary Committees. Dr. Barry Karlin, CEO of the nation's largest drug and alcohol treatment provider, CRC Health Group, with seven facilities in the state, will join
