    With the CDC and different states trying to limit the options for those using opiates to help control pain. The debate is whether those on opiates are addicts or patients. Another debate within the Chronic Pain Community is if you don’t take prescribed medication than the person may not be suffering as much as those who do. Let’s look at what is being state and by whom. Is there a difference on who says what? Are those who suffer from Chronic Pain relying too heavily on doctors to give them a “Cure” of “Hope?” Call in and give us your thoughts and opinions as we work to a solution in which everyone can work together and fight for the cause.

    Who Will You Be When You Grow Up?

    in Self Help

    Have you ever wondered why you act the way you do and the rest of your family members don't act that way even though you are all part of the same family?  Who you become as an adult is often reflected in how you felt as a child.  If you felt unloved, or not god enough, you carry those feelings into adulthood and play them out.  There are specific, recognizable roles children who grew up in addictive familes display.  They are learned roles and can be unlearned once the adult understands why he/she chose them as a survival mechanism when growing up.  Join us to explore the roles of hero, scapegoat, lost child, and mascot as discovered by addiction expert, Dr. Claudia Black.  Loving these roles can help you change them if you choose.

    Carl Siciliano of The Ali Forney Center

    in LGBT

    Carl Siciliano, founder and executive director of The Ali Forney Center, talks to Randy about the current #HarlemNoHate Campaign which aims to raise funds to help the Center purchase a church in Harlem to expand it's services for homeless LGBT youth.


    The poetic irony is that the pastor of the church, Rev. James Manning, has spent years spewing vitriolic hate speech towards the LGBT community in Harlem.


    Pastor Manning is notorious for signage at the church with messages such as “Jesus would stone homos” and that all supporters of LGBT people should be cursed with cancer, HIV, madness, and eternal damnation.


    "The biggest reason our youths are driven from their homes is because of homophobic and transphobic religious beliefs of their parents. If we are able to obtain the space it would truly be a triumph of love over hatred," says Siciliano.


    The church is being put up for auction due to unpaid bills and tax liens on February 24th. The goal of the #HarlemNoHate campaign is to purchase the church and make what was once a place that put religious-based hate on broad display, and turn it into a safe haven for young LGBT.


    The Ali Forney Center is the largest and most comprehensive organization in the nation dedicated to housing LGBT youth. AFC serves youth aged 16-24, and provides emergency and transitional housing, street outreach, a drop-in center, medical and mental health treatment, a vocational/educational program, and a counseling project for the families of LGBT youth.


    Listen as we talk about the difficulties homeless LGBT youth face and how you can help.

    Prime Threat - Shattering the Power of Addiction

    in Business

    Joan Peck Prime Threat - Shattering the Power of Addiction is a book that forces you to look at life differently.  It is a powerful book of channeled discussions between myself and my son that explains his addictions and addictions as a whole in a greater spiritual sense - the whys, the ways, and the solutions.  It is a book that goes even deeper into the understanding of how the energies of the Universe work, ensuring us that we have the power to choose how we want to live - hopefully, one without addictions.  It is a book of hope and possibilities.


    Joan S. Peck


    Having come from a family who loved to read all categories of books, it is no surprise that Joan wanted to write – just not the way it began.  After watching her son struggle with addictions from early childhood until his death at the age of 36, Joan was driven to know how his addictions began and why his life ended up the way it did.  Working with her son, Jay, from the other side, and asking all the questions she wanted answered, she now shares with you their loving true account of his many lifetimes of addictions and shows you how it is possible to live without addictions now.
