Over the years I have witnessed that everyone has their own idea of what substance abuse counseling entails. For some, the first thing that comes to mind is treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism; others think of helping youth with drug problems; and those in recovery tend to think of relapse prevention.
However, in addition to TREATMENT and RECOVERY, there is also PREVENTION. And, just like the other categories, folks tend to NOT want to address it either!
Ironically enough, last week I received a comment from one of my “avid blog-readers” stating that perhaps my blog topics were too weighty. . . . Well, ya’ll ain’t seen nothing yet 🙂 !
So, in keeping with my promises, the following topic was taken from last week’s Upcoming Posts:
Ten Tips for Prevention for Parents
with information shared by the respected website, The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (NCADD).
“Without question, Talking With Your Children* is extremely important in our efforts to protect our kids from alcohol and drugs. But there are other things that we need to do as parents to be effectively involved in preventing alcohol and drug problems for our kids and in our families.

There is a tendency to live in hell(denial),, instead of heaven, in short we’re unable to accept help until much pain has been inflicted…
I hope that my site will LESSEN the inflicted pain with awareness, education and being pro-active to raise-the-bottom!
