We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. 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!
In 2011, President Obama issued the first-ever Presidential Proclamation designating October as National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. The tradition continues in 2014 as parents, youth, schools and community leaders across the country join this month-long observance of the role that prevention plays in promoting safe and healthy communities. As the Proclamation states: "Preventing substance abuse before it begins is the most effective way to eliminate the damage caused by drugs and the abuse of alcohol." Take appropriate action to promote prevention activities in your community.
