The abuse of prescription drugs has taken place quietly among a segment of the population where you'd least expect it: the elderly. "I call it the silent epidemic," says Ruth Sanchez-Way, director of the federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. She says many older people either don't realize or are ashamed to admit they've got a drug problem. Yet her agency estimates that 17% of Americans age 60 and older abuse prescription drugs or alcohol. Sanchez-Way says that, in many cases, prescription drug abuse goes hand in hand with a drinking problem.

Tonight's special guest is Michael Broussard from Philadelphia, a child abuse survivor with a unique way to be of service and carry the message. NAASCA has committed to presenting his play, a one-man show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor," to a wider and ever-expanding audience through our web site and on our talk shows. The next presentation will be on Sunday, November 9 at 5:00pm at The Adrienne Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Michael says to his friends in the Philadelphia area, "My interactive stage show about childhood sexual abuse is happening again on Nov 9th. I tell my story of survival and healing and I invite audience members to comment, ask questions and tell their own stories during feedback breaks throughout the performance. The show has been praised by mental health professionals and survivors." During the play, which was first performed at the end of June, 2014, Michael told the story of a childhood lost to abuse — and rediscovered decades later. Throughout the performance, audience members were encouraged to share their own experiences, ask questions and offer up comments. The play provides a unique opportunity for an open, interactive dialogue on the effects and causes of abuse and, as such, NAASCA will be devoted to helping the play be presented elsewhere. We'll sponsor these events and list them on the NAASCA web site when they are scheduled, etc, too, as an ongoing project / service. We're delighted to count Michael among our NAASCA family members.

It amazes me how many of us, I include myself because I was guilty of this for so long, think that it is ok to abuse our body when we don't even do that with our house and cars. This is a sad reality in today's society and this has to change in order for us to move towards a more healthier self. What do I mean when I say the word "abuse"? It does sound like a harsh word but it is exactly what we do and you can learn more about what I mean with this by listening to today's talk.
This Thriver show features Marie, a mother of 5 children, who endured a 7 years relationship with a narcissist.
We talk about how one of the biggest discoveries Marie made, is how co-dependent she was – and how she always had to fill her life with activities and people, and after escaping her relationship with the narcissist, how she couldn’t initially bear to be alone.
During our conversation Marie shares about how working on establishing her Identity has been key, and she shares her involvement with Co-Dep (Co-dependents Anonymous) and how fascinating her children are as “a mirror” to make her recovery not just about herself, but also about them.
You will also learn from this interview about Marie’s new partner, who is the father of her youngest two children, and how incredibly different the relationship is from her previous narcissistic one.
