Addiction in the Family? Here's help

Raised by 16 people in 63 months
For more than 3 years I have been producing a weekly radio show to support those who love addicts and alcoholics.  I have been interviewing experts and experienced people on  many important topics  to offer resources, information, possibilities and hope in order for families and loved ones to be able to make informed decisions while coping with addiction in the family. At this time, when many rely on this weekly information to help them cope with the  daily chaos and drama that addiction brings, I need help to continue to offer this awareness program to listeners and to the general public. http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/addicted-to-addicts-survival-101/. My show "Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101" is free to everyone and accessible on the internet (both on ITunes and Webtalk radio)24/7. I speak in the public to family groups, schools, hospitals, etc.  Many of my listeners and professionals in the field have asked how they can help me with this message.  This is your opportunity. This is a very valuable resource. This issue does not descriminate nor are there geographical borders involved.  Any amount of donation is appreciated.  I thank you and my audience (both on the radio and offline) thank you!

Hi all:
Lots happening and need your help. I recently interviewed experts on the topics of Substance Abuse and PTSD in the military, Smartphone addiction, Why is the US called the Incarceration Nation?, and Christian based help for addicts. So many topics important to so many americans!

The radio show is going strong. I've been out in the community speaking at colleges, professional groups, family groups as well as working on some articles for some magazines.
As always, awareness, support, and resources my focus.

On the weekend of October 4th and 5th (2015) there is a big event happening in Washington, DC. It is a rally called Unite to Face Addiction. There are already over 500 partner organizations involved and 10s of thousands reported attending. This is somewhere I need to be to speak with attendees, see for myself how this issued is received in Washington, and report back to you what steps are being made to address the huge issue of addiction in our country. Please check out the website https://www.facingaddiction.org/ for details.
The Fed Up Rally will be there on the same weekend at the same place so I will be attending both. http://feduprally.org/
Please help get me there to represent you and bring the information back. Any amount of donation will be appreciated and invaluable.

The radio show is offering lots of updates on trends and controversies in the addiction field. Make sure to visit and check the new episodes out. I made a special episode just for dads for Father's Day!
Also, thanks to all of you who have contributed so far. I'm able to continue the show for now and even able to get out to speak to the public where I can have even more impact and give more support.
Please be sure to share this site wherever you can so we can make a difference in the lives of the millions of people dealing with addiction in their worlds.

Please help support these and all future shows to support, addicts, loved ones, and keep the general public aware that this is not just someone else's problem!
