    Society is like a bad drug. We know that the issues that societies presents is nonprogressive and bad for us but we refuse to give it up. We are content with the undue homelessness, the unnecessary billing, and bullying in the guise of protective services. We must be satisfied, because we have yet to quit. What is holding us back from getting out of the illusionary world wrought with problems? Is it fear of the unknown? Is it comfort and luxury? Or is it something even greater psychologically?

    SUBSTANCE ABUSE & MENTAL HEALTH: The chicken or the egg?

    in Self Help

    Special Guest Interview: Dr. LaNae Jaimez, Professor of Psychology, Solano Community College

    Long gone are the days when a substance abuse treatment program ONLY treats substance use disorders. In todays landscape most if not all programs are Dual Diagnosed or Co-occuring capable. Join us as we discuss the role mental health treatment has played in the successful recovery from substance abuse for many individuals. It wasn't always so. The integration of mental health into mainstream substance abuse treatment was not a smooth one. There were (still are) difficulties with traditional treatment program staff accepting, and understanding mental health treatment. The stigma attached to having a mental health disorder contributes to client reluctance to fully engage in the assessment process. Our guest breaks down the rise of mental health treatment as an integral part of substance abuse treatment and recovery.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1235

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Deborah Dooley from Denver, Colorado, a NAASCA family member who's making her first appearance as a special guest on our show. "The support of the unity of your organization has already impacted me," she told us some time ago. "I already felt great about even making contact with you and knowing what you are doing that it gave me a refreshed hope about my own journey of healing." Deborah's a proud member of the Christian community, but also wrote me that she recognized the benefit of using a 12 step "design for living" for child abuse recovery, saying, "Many times, I have thought about how valuable it would be to have a 12 step program for abuse issues that could translate to help all people since the 12 step is so effective in its use." A 12 step program encourages belief in a Power greater than oneself, of course, but allows for a God as you understand Him. She said, "I, personally, hope to go through this 12 step program that you have developed" (please see www.ASCA12step.org). Deborah was born in Hawaii but lives in Denver now, and tells us she's the proud mother of a daughter who unfortunately ended her life in July 2013 after a long series of very traumatic circumstances. "My life up until her death was focused on getting her safe from abuse by her dad since the courts don't protect kids from this," she says, "and there's no place to turn for help at this point to protect your child. I am now working on what is the best and most expedient solution for the courts." She believes that these kinds of preventable tragedies can be stopped from happening to children and families. Deborah hopes to work toward making our country be more loving towards its children.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1234

    in Self Help

    Gratitude Night !! On this Thanksgiving evening, we'll pause to give expressions of our gratitude for our recovery from child abuse and trauma, and express our desire that we can be effective in our mission .. (1) to educate the public to stop the silence and (2) to offer hope and help to the still suffering adult survivor of child abuse. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org
