I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
Jesus Christ is the Truth the Life the Way !
When it comes to teen risky behaviors, the best
information comes straight from the source - we'll never know what's
going on in their world unless we ask. That's why the National institute
on Drug Abuse (NIDA) surveys teens about their drug, medicine, and
alcohol abuse for its Monitoring the Future study every year. The
results for 2012 are in, and over-the-counter cough medicine abuse
remains around 5%. Every parent should read the survey findings to learn
about the influences and pressures their teen might be facing. Read the Five Moms' summary of the report findings and check out Becky's take on how parents can use the report results for talking to their teens on our blog.
