Joel Ayapana RN, BSN, BA is the author of The Book of Positive Light: Rememberance of the Heart, which recounts the meaning of positivity as a story that Joel shares in the hopes of providing mental clarity for readers. A pscyhiatric nurse with more than a decade of experience in the field, Joel's focus lies in the application of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy within the Group Therapy Setting. He will soon be hosting his own BBS Radio Talk Show entitled "Quantum Mindfulness"- a term that Joel has coined to define as "a state of awareness that can be utilized as the tools and the armor of resilience where the theoretical constructs and to where the most profound and amazing of findings discovered by researchers of Quantum Physics and Mechanics are integrated with Heart-Centered Consciousness and Awakened Mindfulness."
Joel is also a Veteran of the United States Air Force and has been a Registered Nurse in Cleveland, Ohio, delivering first rate care to mentally ill patients, victims of substance abuse and anxiety disorders as well as the homeless.

This is a great program on how the United States is quickly becoming a nation where a huge percentage of its economy is and will grow to be based on drugs. The estimated cost now of illegal drugs in the U.S. ranges to $276 billion a year. Alcohol abuse costs about $185 billion a year and tobacco costs about $155 billion a year. We must realize, in our push to "decriminalize" and "criminalize" drugs in order to save state government dollars and irresponsibly garner election year votes that the real costs far exceed what is only involved in the acquisition of drugs. We must factor in drug-related medical care, lost productivity, murders, destroyed families, insurance costs, suicides, property crimes, and law enforcement costs. The costs to this nation in substance abuse problems, then, are huge and in part due to the consumption-based society in which we live and which is not sustainable in the near future. We must change our social organization to relieve people of such a pronounced need to self-medicate. We must reengineer this drug-based social remedy through a medical model and must restructure our economy into a sustainment-based model.
The most abused substance in this country is alcohol and that is because it is largely legal. While legalizing drugs is politically popular, the erosion of our social fabric and our reliance on outmoded public management methods will undermine the vitality of our nation and usher in a period of unprecedented social depression and loss of global leadership.

The radio show host and Executive Director of Saint Jude Retreats, Michelle Dunbar, opens the segment with a brief description of what Saint Jude Retreats is and the philosophy behind it. Trending topics follow, with local and national news connected to young adults.
The interview with our guest follows, as Dr. Epstein is being interviewed by Steven Slate, the Director of the Saint Jude Retreats program in New York City. Slate introduces Dr. Epstein- an author, editor, and longtime psychology researcher and professor, who is passionate about educating the public about advances in mental health and the behavioral sciences. Epstein is the author of Teen 2.0: Saving Our Children and Families from the Torment of Adolescence and The Case Against Adolescence: Rediscovering the Adult in Every Teen. Slate and Epstein discuss the myth of adolescence in our culture , especially in regards to substance use.
Epstein comments: "[...] the kinds of problems that we see, including drug abuse and alcoholism among young people, are produced by culture. There is nothing necessary about that turmoil. It's the myth that we've created saying that this turmoil is inevitable and somehow it's part of the teen brain or it's in the genes or something like that, and that's false, that's a myth. "
Dunbar concludes the radio show by answering questions posted by listeners on the topics of adolescent substance use, by addressing the questions of a young adult, who is experimenting with drugs, and a parent, who is suspicious of substance use regarding his son.
Florida bill SB 670 moved through the Florida Senate this last week. The bill would provide protection from accountability and responsibility for owners and investors in nursing homes. In the end, it would also limit the amount that could be recovered in damages. The deep pockets of private equity firms and passive investors would be protected under a measure passed by the Senate on Thursday.
Obviously, profits are far more important than making sure the people representing your investments in the nursing homes (the employees) are well trained and performing their jobs in a professional manner.
Sighting the high cost applied to each bed, the claim is made that this cost would be reduced by reducing or outright erradicating any access to the people who supply the capital investment in the homes.
Maybe a better busines plan would be to make sure that abuse, forced drugging, starvation and neglect didn't happen in the first place.
Also: we will be discussing kangaroo courts...what that really means and why you should be hopping mad over it!

Tonight's special guest is Marjorie (Margie) McKinnon, abuse survivor, activist and returning NAASCA family member. Margie is the founder of The Lamplighters Movement, an international movement for incest and child sexual abuse recovery. She's author of several books, including "REPAIR Your Life: A Program for Recovery from Incest & Childhood Sexual Abuse." The name of the REPAIR program is an acronym that stands for the stages of the program: Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insight and Rhythm. "When I was in incest recovery," Ms. McKinnon writes, "living in a women's shelter, married to my third abuser, suicidal, and fumbling my way in the dark, I thought, ‘If only I had a Lamplighter, someone who would show me the way.'" From that, the dream of the Lamplighter Movement was born. The Lamplighter Movement is growing, and now has over 100 chapters internationally in 13 countries. Magie writes, "My program, REPAIR, is the result of several years of note-taking, keeping a journal, meditation, and piecing together parts of my own life, as well as conversations with other incest survivors across the country. As I worked my way through recovery, I kept notes in anticipation that someday what I was learning might help others. When I began this book, I re-read my own first-person account, I Never Heard A Robin Sing, to re-walk the path I had taken. I never realized at the time how blessed I was, for that path, although rugged, was straight, and in retrospect provided me with invaluable help to create this program."
