 SAMHSA announces a working definition of "recovery" from mental disorders and substance use disorders

A new working definition of recovery from mental disorders and substance use disorders is being announced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The definition is the product of a year-long effort by SAMHSA and a wide range of partners in the behavioral health care community and other fields to develop a working definition of recovery that captures the essential, common experiences of those recovering from mental disorders and substance use disorders, along with major guiding principles that support the recovery definition.

The new working definition of Recovery from Mental Disorders and Substance Use Disorders is as follows:
"A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential."

Thursday's Daily Brief

Thursday, January 19, 2012
Arianna Huffington: I'm delighted to announce the launch of Global Motherhood, a new section within HuffPost Impact dedicated to the health and well being of mothers and babies around the world, and sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. Global Motherhood will go beyond matters of physical health to address the full spectrum of issues affecting mothers and their babies, with a special focus on the dangers faced by pregnant women in underdeveloped countries and the guilt and fear that accompany childbirth for many women. It will also be a place to share our personal stories. With infant mortality on the rise in the U.S., and 1,000 women and girls dying everyday worldwide, we need all the innovation and creativity that we can muster. Only by tapping into our collective wisdom will we arrive at the solutions we and our children deserve.

Report: Romney Millions In Cayman Accounts

The Big Story, By Joe Conason
Mitt Romney's reluctance to release his tax returns suddenly makes perfect sense: According to a report filed by the ABC News investigative team late Wednesday, the Romneys have invested millions of dollars in offshore tax havens -- specifically, in several accounts domiciled in the "notorious" Cayman Islands.

Headlined "Romney Parks Millions In Cayman Islands," an article on the network website notes that "he has used a variety of techniques to help minimize the taxes on his estimated $250 million fortune." Earlier this week, he admitted paying as little as 15 percent of his multi-million-dollar annual income in federal taxes. But the ABC report said that "in addition to paying the lower tax rate on his investment income, Romney has as much as $8 million invested in at least 12 funds listed on a Cayman Islands registry." A Romney campaign spokesman told ABC that the Cayman accounts had no effect on the tax liability of the candidate and his wife Ann. READ MORE

Members of the Tea Party insisted they were turning the GOP into a populist, anti-establishment bastion. Social conservatives have long argued that values and morals matter more than money. Yet in the end, the corporate and economically conservative wing of the Republican Party always seems to win. READ MORE

Keystone XL
Raising the stakes in a bitter election-year fight with Republicans, President Barack Obama on Wednesday rejected a Canadian company's plan to build a continent-spanning, 1,700-mile pipeline to carry oil across six U.S. states to Texas refineries. Though the project promises thousands of temporary jobs for the recovering U.S. economy, Obama said a February deadline set by Congress would not allow for a proper review of potential harm from the $7 billion Keystone XL project.

Super PACs
This week, dubbed "Super PAC week" by the house comedian warming up the crowd before the taping of Tuesday night's "Colbert Report," has featured the satirist stretching campaign finance laws so far that, if the government actually enforced them, viewers might fear he'd end up in jail. By collaborating with a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, Colbert has succinctly showcased the flimsy scrim of "independence" between candidates and the third-party groups that would buy their elections. As his friend Jon Stewart made a Super PAC ad insisting that a vote for Herman Cain in South Carolina was actually a vote for Colbert, he simply stood by -- grinning. READ MORE

War is a different universe. What seems acceptable there is appalling here. It is not too much to say that war is a form of madness. This is not to suggest those Marines in Afghanistan ought not be criticized -- no, this is only to suggest that our judgment be tempered by a recognition that these people have been in a place where the rules are different, that not every wound you carry out of such places is visible, and that in their way, the invisible wounds may be the costliest ones.

Strange But True
When Karen Garver met Rick Santorum, the man who would become her husband and father of her seven children, she was living with Tom Allen, an OB/GYN who co-founded Pittsburgh's first abortion clinic. Allen is 41 years older than Santorum, and in fact he was literally the first man she ever met when, as her mother's obstetrician, he delivered her in 1960. "Karen had no problems with what I did for a living," Allen said. "We never really discussed it." READ MORE
