prevalent in Israel. According
to Twerski, "Israel's drug pro-
blems are a greater threat
than the PLO." During a
three-month visit last year,
time he had set aside to study
Talmud and history, he was
asked to tour the country as
a substance abuse expert.
Hashish, opium and cocaine
are the major drugs used and
according to Twerski there
are about 20,000 hard core
addicts and 200,000 Israelis
who use drugs fairly often.
Twerski says 87 percent of
prisoners released from
Israeli jails were there for
drug offenses. Drug treat-
ment facilities don't seem to
be able to handle the growing
drug crisis. As a result, Twer-
ski has been working on a
pilot project, hoping to imple-
ment a program when he
returns to Israel in January.
When Twerski is not doctor-
ing or speaking, he is writing.
Topics include books on
Jewish thought, psychiatry,
self-exploration, lessons he
learned from his father and,
most recently, a collaborative
effort with "Peanuts" car-
toonist Charles Schultz.
"When I was teaching
residents I would often find
`Peanuts' strips which in four
frames could better sum up a
psychological concept than I
could in 20 minutes of lec-
tures," Twerski says. Having
used Schultz' materials for
years, Twerski contacted the
cartoonist's publisher and a
match was made.
A compilation of Schultz
strips with Twerski commen-
tary, When Do the Good
Things Start?, was born. A se-
quel will be released in the
spring as will two other
volumes, Jewish Living Can
Enhance Happiness and Ad-
dictive Thinking: How Ad-
dicts Think.
Twerski says jokingly that
his "addiction" to writing is
not dissimilar to the conpul-
sion so many of his patients
experience.
"With all the 12-step pro-
grams in existence to help
people deal with problems,
perhaps someone will
recognize the need for an
Author's Anonymous," he
says. ❑
