Date:11/19/2007

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of the Treatment Advocacy Center (TAC) selected attorney and consumer Kurt Entsminger to be the organization's next executive director, only the second since the organization was formed nine years ago. Entsminger was unanimously approved at TAC's board meeting on November 10, 2007. He will start January 2, 2008.
