Drug and alcohol misuse is often a sign of depression, a silent cry for help for those who may be overwhelmed by emotional distress. Unfortunately, seeking counseling still carries a social stigma in some cultures and too many people have neglected to address emotional problems in a healthy manner, instead turning to the temporary quick fix of drugs or alcohol. Then, when a person uses poor judgement while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they are viewed by society as a criminal. Kate Mahoney, Executive Director of PEER Service, is a licenced Cllinical Social Worker with 30 years experience in the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders. She discusses the need for families to take the stigma out of substance abuse and allow loved ones to seek and receive the help they need for emotional distress. She urges society to decriminalize drug and alcohol addiction. When teens act out with excessive drinking or drug use, they are crying out for help but are often met with punishment rather than assistance. Kate, who has done extensive work with youth parents and schools, has been awarded by the Illinois Acoholism and Drug Dependence Association for her presentations on cutting edge clinical issues at national conferences in Atlanta, Philiadelphia, St. Louis, and New Orleans. She discusses signs of emotional distress and ways to help those who need help to seek it out without fear of ridicule or rejection.

Tonight's special guest is Deb Maybury, a returning NAASCA family member, public speaker, activist, Harmony Integration Coach and facilitator at The Gatehouse in Toronto, and author of "Unlock The Door-Beyond Sexual Abuse" and "What Is Your Teenage Daughter Afraid Of?" She describes herself as an entrepreneur .. a woman of many hats who's focus is on assisting others in their healing process through awareness, support and connection. It is her mission to be part of the movement to remove the stigma and taboo associated with sexual abuse and to do that in a way that promotes a healing. In 2006, her dearest old friend of 33 years lost her battle with cancer. She told Deb, "I'm not afraid of dying; I'm just not ready to go.” Ms. Maybury's response? "I told her that if she was leaving me here I was just going to have to do, be, become, enjoy, and learn enough for both of us. In her memory, I continue to strive to learn, teach, and challenge myself and others." Ms Maybury has certainly kept her promise and is an excellent representative of the NAAASCA family and mission. She also hosts her own "Reveal, Connect and Heal" talk shows, and recently interviewed NAASCA founder, Bill Murray.

Tonight's special guest is Polly Moore from Atlanta, Georgia, the Executive Administrative Assistant of Angela Williams, Founder of VOICE Today, a non-profit organization whose mission is to break the cycle and silence of child sexual abuse through awareness, prevention, and healing programs. She began volunteering with VOICE Today on July 17, 2012, the day after she broke her silence. She'd found her voice at VOICE Today’s support group the night before. Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years. She is contemplating returning to finish her final year at Western Carolina University where she majored in Accounting, and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. Polly says she will forever continue to help fellow adult survivors find their voice and welcome their healing through the working of Angela Williams and VOICE Today.
