Dr Westley Clark left CSAT a few months ago, and now Pam Hyde has resigned as Administrator of SAMHSA.

Is this good or bad Zac? Is the replacement a better candidate?

Well we don't know... We have no clue who the replacement will be at this time. This is a position that is appointed by the President, and with President Obama only having a year and a half left as President who knows if we'll even GET a new permanent SAMHSA Administrator before the next administration. If I were betting I would say one of the deputy directors would be appointed as an interim until after the next Presidential election. We shall see.....

Ugh, that all sounds a bit up in the air. Let's hope then that the next government are going to be a treatment/MMT friendly government, and not an ultra right wing one that's going to be so heavy handed that they see sending people to jail as preferable to any treatment.
