Getting sober is possible. Addicts can completely recover and transform their lives if they are given the proper tools. Ending Addiction for Good is one of those tools. Ending Addiction for Good: The Groundbreaking, Holistic, Evidence-Based Way to Transform Your Life By Richard Taite and Constance Scharff, Ph.D. There is hardly a family in the post-industrial world that hasn’t been affected in some way by addiction. Yet seeking treatment for a struggling loved one is, for mos
Good Deeds presents Lorelie Rozzano is a recovering addict. She is also a mother, wife, grandmother, foster parent, family counselor, author, small business owner, sister, aunt, daughter and friend.
For Rozzano, a phone call to her parents when she had reached her lowest point, out of work, money and friends due to her addictions, turned things around and brought her to treatment. She has now been living clean and sober for 17 years. And it is this success and desire to share her knowledge and the possibility of help to others that led to the creation of her first book Jagged Little Edges, and then her second, Jagged Little Lies, for she has now found what she needed to soften those edges that were destroying her life.“The relief I had in becoming well was actually what I had been looking for in drugs and alcohol,” Rozzano explains. It was in treatment that she discovered her strong inner core and learned how to examine her life and behaviors in a brutally honest fashion and to admit just how her addictions had ruled her life for so long.Rozzano now works at the center she sobered up in and is dedicated to helping others with the lifelong struggle against addiction.
And perhaps for someone reading the bleak, painful truths in the Jagged series, Jagged Little Edges, Jagged Little Lies, or on her blog, www.jaggedlittleedges.com there will come a moment of clarity and self-awareness that can help that person also get ready to change. “After all, Rozzano states, if I can get sober, anyone can.”
Today I want to talk to you about a happy ending. We all like a good ending, and a happy ending makes for a good ending. We read books to get to the ending, we watch movies to see how it ends. I can endure a slow start or even a bad start to a movie or book if it picks up and has a good ending. We can't even begin to count how many children's books end with the line “and they lived happily ever after.” It's just something in our nature that wants to see things work in a good way for good people.
This is a GUARANTEED way to defeat any addiction or any destructive lifestyle.

Good Deeds presents Dr. Rebera Foston. Dr. Foston help the younger generation who are spiritually disenfranchised in America. Speaking with younger adults and youth to help them spiritually is DrFoston main objective. Author of many books including her acclaimed poetry, Dr. Rebera is guiding the younger generation to a better adulthood. The problem is that adolescence is too crowded! It is filled with children who have been catapulted there and deprived of their childhood. It is also filled with adults who never left adolescence because they never healed from a childhood trauma. It is also filled with the young people who are supposed to be there, but they are being crowded out by the other two groups. Because so many young people are crowded out of their own developmental space, many have developed an “Addiction to hopelessness.” Adolescence is already turbulent enough without the added pressures of this unique addiction.
Dr. Rebera believes that each adolescent has at least one unique gift that needs to be nurtured as the focal point towards his or her journey to adulthood. If young people are not assisted in finding their gifts, their “addiction to hopelessness” worsens. Many cannot find or nurture this gift alone. They must be mentored holistically. In their advertising, traditional mentoring programs use the slogan that “anyone can be a mentor.” We do not believe that this is true. If an adult is not whole or at least on their way to wholeness, they may actually harm the teen they are supposed to be trying to help. Learn more at www.fostoninstitute.com

Good Deeds presents Marshelle "Comedian Ms. Woody" Woodland- the founder and CEO of Midwest Show Me Funny Entertainment.
I am currently working on several ways to deliver this powerful message about bullying.Marshelle "Comedian Ms. Woody" Woodland grew up in St. Louis, MO, and has been developing her comedic art since the mid 1980's. As a college student at Southeast Missouri State University, Woody was inspired to make people laugh by Cedric the Entertainer when he used her as a subject in his stand-up act. Woody has performed with the likes of Jesse Taylor, Darius Bradford, Arvin Mitchell and many more. Woody has co-hosted radio programs with Bob Lawrence, and produced, promoted voted and sponsored The Annual Midwest Show Me Funny Comedy Competition, featuring comedians from around the United States. Woody's main focus, however, is the need for community members to encourage and support each other.

Woody's main focus, however, is the need for community members to encourage and support each other. Whether she is fundraising for charities, passing out water in the extreme heat to homeless, or driving her kids to school events, Woody is focused on making Midwest Show Me Funny Entertainment the first venture incorporating multiple not for profit groups for a single purpose. Ms Woody elaborates " When you are laughing you forget your troubles and your pain. It's always better to support people who are there for the greater good.
