TODAY is International Overdose Awareness Day (Aug. 31, 2015).
Join with us as we remember those who have suffered and lost their battle to overcome their addiction.
* Help to reduce the STIGMA and MISINFORMATION surrounding opiate (and other prescription drug) addiction and overdose.
* Most opiate (including heroin) addictions start from prescription pain killer usage.

Are you a “middle-aged” guy feeling alone? Are all the pressures of job, family, finances and plain life building up inside you? Or maybe it is a job or family loss that has you angry, frustrated and drained. Is this all there really is to life? Or maybe you notice a friend not himself lately.
Teens, with school kicking back into gear, it can create all types of thoughts, emotions and physical exhaustion. Most teenagers do not eat healthy or get the required amount of sleep, so feeling tired is normal -right? Do you feel down because you realize summer is over? Maybe you relax better outside in nature rather than stuck in a classroom? Do you think you not “normal” and won’t fit in? Are you tired of being bullied?
Young men, are you nervous about starting college? Do you feel you are not going to be good enough to please everyone, especially yourself? How will you keep up with classes, homework, activities, and of course, the girlfriend?
How would you know if you, or a friend, is sad and not depressed?
