NoShame

No Shame to be an Addict.

No Shame to be the Family or Friend of an Addict.

No Shame to Seek Help if you're an Addict.

No Shame to Seek Help for an Addict.

Consider This:

(CNN) — The face of heroin abuse in America is changing.

Back in the 1960s, heroin users were usually young men, who started using around an average age of 16. They were most likely from low-income neighborhoods, and when they turned to opiates, heroin was their first choice.

Now, more than 50 years later, a study from JAMA paints a very different picture. Today's typical heroin addict starts using at 23, is more likely to live in the affluent suburbs and was likely unwittingly led to heroin through painkillers prescribed by his or her doctor.

Now Consider This:

If your child or anyone you love were prescribed medications for some ailment and that prescription led to them contracting an illness like cancer, you wouldn't hesitate to reach out for help. There would be NO SHAME or stereotype, but there would be unlimited rallying, prayers, love and support.

The Only Way to Fight This Epidemic is to Understand It. Let Support and Treatment Replace Stereotypes and Shame.

Join the Rally on Saturday, October 28, 2017 - From 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

It's Time to Come Out of the Dark. A Special Invitation for Addicts, Their Families and Loved Ones. This is for you and you are Welcome. Professional Resources and Support will be Available.
