Addicts in Distress: The History of a Volunteer Group Which Organized Itself Around the Problem of Narcotic Addiction in the Stamford Area in Connecticut, September, 1958 Through March, 1962
The Second Great Commandment is like unto the First, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Man's record of kindness for his fellow man has not been untarnished, and yet, there have been proofs that man can and does have a concern for his fellow man. This has been shown in many times and in many ways. Either because of religious motivation and duty, or because of humanitarian concern springing from an accepted sense of responsibility, countless persons have sought means to fill the needs of countless others. Sometimes these needs are answered by individual acts of kindness of one person to another. In other cases, the need is such that it calls for a more complex, organized effort. Sometimes these needs are met by the political community. At other times, these needs are recognized by private individuals who seek to do something about a problem. This dissertation describes a group of volunteers who organized themselves to bring about cooperation of many to help a few.
