    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.

    From Darkness to Light Blackout! - Black Atheists Profiled:

    in Religion

    The African American community has always boasted of a strong spiritual foundation born from the days of slavery onward. The Church was also seen as spiritual oasis during the turbulent times of the civil rights movement when it fulfilled the role of school, community meeting place, news center, and political headquarters. For many blacks, attending Church was never a matter of choice but of obligation. But in this day and age, an ever increasing number of African Americans are taking a stand and declaring themselves free of these cultural and institutional boundaries.  And if there was ever a stigma attached to being an Atheist then it is doubled in consideration of race. These Black Atheists, Humanists and so-called free thinkers are on the move spreading their anti-gospel to every African American within earshot – letting them know that if they have doubts, they are not alone. But is there war truly against God? ; Or against Religion? And do they even know the difference between the two? Join us today for another installment of From Darkness to Light as we examine a Satanic Plot to further separate the Biblical Children of God from their rightful inheritance.

    Ladies, Does Loving You, Mean You Have to Degrade Me?

    in Relationships

    Do you believe that your hair is your true crown and glory? If so, should it be together?
    How does it make you feel not to see a woman that represents YOU on a commercial or in a magazine ad?
    Are all women viewed by each other as equal?
    How do black women feel about themselves and how are they perceived by other cultures?
    Is your appearance showing your confidence, or revealing your insecurity?

    Featured Guest: Christy Little-Jones has a heart for people, marriages and family! As the eldest daughter of one of the first models of color in Mademoiselle and Seventeen magazines, and an NFL Hall-of-Famer, carving out a path of passion, purpose and influence is in Christy’s blood. But fulfilling that legacy took work.

    Like many young women, Christy struggled to overcome insecurity and people pleasing, and it was not until a traumatic event in her life forced her to do the difficult inner work of breaking free from emotional obstacles that she was ready to step powerfully into her role in the world.

    Christy’s Ah-Ha! moment came with the realization that God had an assignment on her life! She had the unique privilege and responsibility to walk into her purpose and calling with intention and commitment – and in ways that enabled her to live authentically and become an example and source of support for others.

    As a speaker, writer and coach, Christy Little Jones, is dedicated to encouraging women to make the monumental step toward discovering who God has created them to be, learn how to love themselves absolutely and develop personal integrity with themselves to live what they believe and ultimately experience the relationships they desire.
