Ottawa, Ontario – Children who begin using substances while their brain is still rapidly developing can become addicted much faster than an adult, sometimes as quick as six months depending on the substance. According to the Canadian Alcohol and Drug Use Monitoring Survey, youths 15 to 24 years old have the highest self-reported use of illicit substances compared to other Canadians and are approximately five times more likely to report harm because of drug use.
A child struggling with addiction can’t be expected to navigate their way through these challenges by themselves. It’s a family process. Shontelle Prokipcak is a registered social worker who has been providing mental health and addiction services for children, youth, young adults and their families in the Ottawa Region for over 14 years. Shontelle has extensive training and experience in counseling, crisis management, trauma, victim assistance, addiction issues and treatment, as well as youth conduct disorders.
“I collaborate with schools and the family doctor and the families themselves, even grandparents, so everyone is working together,” says Shontelle. “I try to get everybody on board with my treatment plan because we have better outcomes from that kind of collaboration.”
Shontelle's expertise is working with children, youth and families who have challenges at home or in the community and struggle with anxiety and depression, behavioral problems and addiction.
“Kids don’t know how to regulate their emotions because they’ve been using substances to do that,” explains Shontelle. “We work on concrete skills for the kids to use to deal with stress.”

Dr Stanislaw R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D has a mission to beat cancer. For over 35 years, Dr. Burzynski has led cancer research and care through his Burzynski Clinic, inspired by the philosophy of the physician Hippocrates, to, "First, do no harm." He also fought and won the largest legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in American history.
Since 1967, Dr Burzynski - an internationally recognised physician and biochemist-researcher - has pioneered the development and use of biologically active peptides (Antineoplastons), in diagnosing, preventing and treating cancer, with much controversy along the way. Dr Burzynski’s approach to treatments are based on the natural biochemical defence system of our body, capable of combating cancer with minimal impact on healthy cells.
Despite multiple attacks on his work over more than a decade, including 5 Federal Grand Juries attempting to indict him, the unavoidable fact still remains: Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most “incurable” forms of terminal cancer.
Join Brendan D. Murphy and Aimee Devlin in this episode of Global Freedom Movement Radio, as they speak with Dr Burzynski, to learn why the FDA and Big Pharma are doing everything they can to stop Dr Burzynski in his tracks; and special guest Shontelle Hiron, a former Australian patient of Dr Burzynski’s, diagnosed with brain cancer and given only weeks to live by Oncologists in 1993. Her only treatment for brain cancer has been Antineoplastons. She is still with us today.
