My Ecstasy Driven Night!

My friends and I started our journey at the park near 5 mile, right outside the suburbs of Detroit. There was a small park there with a ton of exploring to be done. The exploring was in our mind, on our bodies, and with illicit substances. Today was the day that I’d try ecstasy. You take a couple of triple-stacks, usually the pink playboys or blue Mitsubishi’s would do it! How the hell I knew this at the fifteen-years-old was beyond me, but hey, youth addiction is becoming pretty common. Scoot rolls up, being the wheeler-dealer he was, with a...

Collaborative Communities to Aide Preventing Addiction

In my personal opinion—which is what you’re here to read—I believe that collaborative communities are the way to finding longevity in not just the recovery community, but our nation(s) as a whole. They have the ability to help create the awareness and educational tools available to prevent addiction before it happens; not after the fact! A collaborative community is the essence of why we share commonalities and differences of our experience, strength, and hope. Through these types of societal changes that will come from creating a more aware, educated, and yet conversational community there will be hope to bring prevention...

Dear Mr. President, Let’s Talk Addiction!

Dear Mr. President,   As a person in long term recovery, if you ever got to meet the president, what would you say? There are many issues to bring up, but the most crucial point pushing forward with 2017, as a new president arrives, and current pandemic eludes forward, is the heroin use agenda. There was the CARA Act and 21st Century Cures Act in recent years, and that does provide some help for people with a substance use disorder seeking treatment. But, people with this seeking treatment will only seek it when they are ready for it. And now,...

Getting to Know the Addict…

The recovery community can't do this alone, but, the community as a whole can change the world forever!-McCollom, 2016. Looking at addiction thirty years ago, and prior, compared to now is truly astonishing. If you hadn’t noticed, there is a stigma behind getting help for an addiction problem. Many are shunned and even told it’s just a “phase.” But consider yourself thirty years ago when you couldn’t be anyone or anything but perfect, normal, and what society sets up as an expectation that isn’t just plain ole' ordinary. But, that wasn't just the case thirty years ago, but we had...

Addiction Commercials Rule! This is why…

I’m absolutely loving that there are more addiction awareness commercials on television! Do you think that the TV is targeting you with specific awareness commercials just because you’ve dealt with addiction? I do! I don’t think it’s possible for the TV channels to do that, but I know that it is with online networking… I saw one recently from LISTEN, where there is a young adult caught by his father, using drugs. It stems out for a few seconds, where he looks a little bit stoned. But then, it comes back in and he’s on the phone with his dad...
