Not me

Actually, substance abuse has no prejudice; it can happen to anyone no matter who they are.


Substance abuse is a treatable brain disease; people can recover.

Their Issue - Not mine

Substance abuse impacts the individual, their family, and community – not just the abuser.

My Problem

“None of your business…” Wrong. It ensnares family, friends, co-workers, and communities.

My secret

Chances are it’s NOT secret. Social stigma is a huge impediment to getting help, “That doesn’t happen in our family…”

Moral Weakness

Not true. It is biopsychosocial matter that ensnares mental wellness. No one chooses addiction.


Incorrect. Evidence-based education is an effective tool in prevention, mitigation, and cessation.
