    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.

    Are seniors citizens 55 or older relevant?

    in Entertainment

    Our demograpic is between the ages of 19-49 Did you know the seniors are only targeted in ads about 1%. That is why the question. Are seniors citizens 55 or older relevant?


    Aging Population Around the World
    The increase in seniors is not just limited to the United States; there is also an aging population explosion in many other countries. According to the AoA, this increase can be attributed to ?advances in science, technology and medicine leading to reductions in infant and maternal mortality, infectious and parasitic diseases, occupational safety measures, and improvements in nutrition and education.?


    In 2000, approximately 605 million people were 60 years or older. By 2050, that number is expected to be close to 2 billion. At that time, seniors will outnumber children 14 and under for the first time in history.

    What Can Teens and Young Adults Do To Stop Police Brutally?

    in Social Networking

    What makes police officers and the government powerless? When the American people know their rights!


    Police officers don't like to hear these words:


    "Am I free to go?"


    "I don't consent to a search."


    "I'm going to remain silent."


        You have rights during a traffic stop or any police encounter. Learn what your rights are and use them before you loose them!


    1. Safety - When being pulled over pull over to a safe place, turn off your ignition, stay in the car and keep your hands on the steering wheel. At night turn on the interior light. Keep your license, registration and proof of insurance close by like in your "sun visor."


     Immediately roll your window down all the way. Not half way, not an inch so you can speak through the crack. All the way. Among other things, it will show that you have nothing to hide.


     Be courteous, stay calm, smile and don't complain. Show respect and say things like "sir and no sir." Never bad-mouth a police officer, stay in control of your words, body language and your emotions. Keep your hands where the police officer can see them. Never touch a police officer and never run away!

    Why Younger Men Love Older Live Chat: Older Woman loving Younger Men COUGAR or Cradle Snatchers


    Ever wonder what attracts a younger man to an older woman? I asked my younger boyfriend that very question and here's what he said.


    by scottatdrakeadmin phillips


    Ever wonder what attracts a younger man to an older woman? I asked my cub that very question and here's what he said.


    I recently got an email from an anonymous cougar who wonders why younger men like older women. She’s had a relationship with a young man and described it as torture-- she was always worried he was comparing her to younger women. 


    Well, I've got news for you. He’s already compared you with girls his age. They came up silly, slutty, and boring. You came up intriguing, sexy, and exciting. He went with you. I too have often wondered about this, so I investigated further, interviewing my cub, Michael. Here’s how the conversation went:
