    Advocating for Older Adults with Addictions

    in Family

    Matthew Silva of the Midwest Institute for Addiction, talks about common addictions among older adults and how their institute assists in helping caregivers to advocate for them.
    Matthew Silva earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling and Masters in Business Administration. Matt is also a Certified Reciprocal Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have been able to study and be supervised by Jack Platt, an extremely brilliant and nationally recognized therapist.
    He struggled with a personal addiction which began a journey into his own recovery and a new love for life. This journey was the start of a desire to learn more about addictions so that he could assist others. 
    He has worked at BJC Behavioral Health as a Community Support worker, SSM St Joseph Hospital as a Psychiatric Therapist, and Director/Service Coordinator of SSM New Vision Detoxification unit. More recently he served as a substance abuse counselor and Vice President of Operational Affairs for Assisted Recovery Centers of America.
    One of Matt's more recent projects was the co-founding of the Temperance House, which has been a successful transitional home for individuals in recovery. After the launch of the Temperance House and achieving his MBA in 2011, Matt made the decision to use his knowledge and expertise to develop an optimum and comprehensive treatment center now known as Midwest Institute for Addiction.

    Salvery-From women forced into prostitution, children and adults forced to work

    in Culture

    What is modern slavery?


    Slavery did not end with abolition in the 19th century.

    The practice still continues today in one form or another in every country in the world. From women forced into prostitution, children and adults forced to work in agriculture, domestic work, or factories and sweatshops producing goods for global supply chains, entire families forced to work for nothing to pay off generational debts; or girls forced to marry older men, the illegal practice still blights contemporary world.

    According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) around 21 million men, women and children around the world are in a form of slavery.

    There are many different characteristics that distinguish slavery from other human rights violations, however only one needs to be present for slavery to exist. Someone is in slavery if they are:



    forced to work - through mental or physical threat;
    owned or controlled by an 'employer', usually through mental or physical abuse or the threat of abuse;
    dehumanised, treated as a commodity or bought and sold as 'property';
    physically constrained or has restrictions placed on his/her freedom of movement.


    Contemporary slavery takes various forms and affects people of all ages, gender and races.
