Nation Taken Hostage

  • Containing and negotiating with the hostage taker
  • Understanding the hostage taker’s personality and motivation in a hostage situation; and
  • Realizing the importance of slowing an incident down so that time can benefit the negotiator
  • Today they abide by the principle of Zero Acceptable Losses and it is the ultimate goal of hostage negotiations. This is a concept that translates directly into the addiction world: zero acceptable losses. I have worked with thousands of people and still mourn those who have lost their lives to this disease.
  • Be Respectful and treat persons suffering from this disease with dignity
  • Be Ethical
  • Break the stigma by continuing to Speak out about addiction and the havoc it is wreaking
  • Be Informed of this terrorist and educate about the risks of an attack
  • Support each other through this war.
  • Offer Treatment and expand resources instead of punishment
