    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.

  • Abuse!

    in Christianity

    Violence has many forms and most are not physical, although we tend to focus on the physical form as the most detrimental. The most common form of abuse is verbal. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and we harm one another daily by not being tactful and showing consideration with our speech. We can also abuse ourselves, which not only hurts us, but those who love and depend on us. Abuse is loss of control based on insecurities, immaturities, and wanton disregard for ourselves or other people. We must all be mindful of our actions regarding not only one another but ourselves. The Lord commanded us to love the Lord God with all our heart, and all our soul, and with all our mind, but how can we do this if we don't love ourselves? Also he commnded us to Love our neighbors as we love OURSELVES... Again, how can we do this if we don't know how to love ourselves. Self-Love is the prerequisite for all external expressions of love. Abuse whether within or towards others, is evidence of some level of self-hate or lack of self-love. Join us as we uncover the root causes of Abuse and how we can learn how to stop it, this Monday, Aug 31, 2015 for Church in the Raw, call in # - (646) 652-2912.

    Can You Help A Loved One With A Substance Abuse Problem?

    in Women

    Alcohol drinkers and drug users rarely see their habits as a problem. It's the people around them who have the problem: the ones who love them who must indure their irrational behavior and unpleasant personality distortions, their unreliability and unpredictability, the embarrassment and disappointment, and the constant apprehension of wondering when the next episode of drunken, drugged out behavior will hurt, shame and humiliate the family. When women suffer from substance abuse, it is often an outgrowth of depression from some unhealed wounds from childhood, frequently sexual assault, physical abuse, verbal abuse, or abandonment. But when the family nurturer, the mother, is herself hurting, the whole family experiences her pain, and they too, grow up emotionally scarred. Pamela Frazier, A National Certified Addiction Counselor, operates N' The Spirit Transformational Living, a licensed recovery home for women. Today she shares with us the challenges and triumphs of women striving to overcome addictions and what loved ones can do to help.

  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1175

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Reverend Larry Ross from Gerald, Missouri, Vice President of "Knights for the Innocent" and National Chaplain and the Founder of the "Pay it Forward" TV channel ministry on You Tube. Larry grew in a single parent home with a drunk abusive father and 2 little brothers after his mother took off. "Dad was always angry and drunk when not at work and would beat us at the drop of a hat," he says. "I remember him beating my Mom so bad that I grabbed his 22. cal revolver and made him stop." The years of sexual abuse he experienced came from a man his Dad and Mom knew. "They made us call him 'Uncle Don'." At around 13 he discovered the world of drugs and drinking. One evening his Dad started to beat on his littlest brother. "I just snapped, breaking his noise and eye socket and hitting him over and over until I thought he was dead. I jumped up and ran down to Dixie's apartment, who is now my wife." At this point they've been together 29 years. She had two young children who'd been sexually abused by her ex-husband. "I know God put me in their house to be their protector," Larry says. It took a while but he got himself on a better path. "I didn't even really look for God," says Larry, "he found me after I spent my life doing drugs drinking and selling weed." Tragedy in his family didn't stop him. "It's all cogs on a wheel that God has planned for my life because now I get the honor of standing up for those too afraid to reach out and ask for help themselves."
