As human beings, we are resilient. When in a state of active addiction, belief in one’s purpose and personal resilience is often lost. To succeed in a battle against addiction, regaining purpose and resilience is essential; our innate power to change often rests in one word – hope.
Hope in oneself can provide motivation for behavioral change. Hope reminds us that we can try again tomorrow. Hope provides a light at the end of the tunnel and unlocks self-belief in future possibilities. Hope is a starting point in life that when instilled, helps others find a life without substance use dependencies.
Education Makes a Difference
We educate individuals, families, and their communities – without judgement – about substance abuse matters. Our efforts identify, publish, and communicate the most accurate information available on substance abuse facts in a fight to stop this epidemic. We seek to:
- Prevent early onset of substance use.
- Clarify the difference between substance abuse, misuse, tolerance, and dependence.
- Help analyze root causes behind substance abuse: trauma, depression, guilt, pain relief, or other life events.
- Provide methods to build a social support network that promotes a fulfilling life – away from substance abuse.
- Promote a full Mind, Body, Spirit model that considers biological, psychological, and social elements.
- Address the interconnectedness of the above to support prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts.
