HOPE AWAITS! If you care STARE!

39697994_156856075624771_r.jpegHello World,

 

I am in search for assistance in turning my home into a Hope Home. A Hope Home is for supportive, structured, sober living. You can call me Konstance Gross; I developed a fear of Care Bears. Because of the Care Bear Stare it made me self-conscious. Or was it the drugs steeping in with paranoia. Anyway, I am a Professional Drug Attic. You’ll find my resume listed amongst others of my profession on CCAP. CCAP stands for Consolidated Court Automation Programs. However, we're not conducive to your society, so I should be going into the system soon to learning new habits. Hopefully turning my home into a Hope Home will help others. Before it gets to the extent of my situation. Because like all my profession, we are extremists.

Addiction is a disease. According to the Center on Addiction there are 40 million Americans age 12 and up OR 1 in every 7 people in America are addicted/abuse drugs, while yet there are only 27 million with heart conditions, 26 million with diabetes, and only 19 million with cancer. Addiction often turns chronic making it an incurable disease, but this disease is preventable and often managed through early detection and treatment therapy. Yet the Center of Addiction claims ONLY 10% of these Americans receive treatment. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 2017 there were 70,237 fatal drug overdoses in the United States. One of which they also claimed Wisconsin is under the significant increase of drug overdose. Obviously, this is no sport to get into the competition to survive is fierce.

The American Addiction Center also asserts that it costs the American society $740 billion annually due to drug abuse and addiction in lost work-productivity, health care expenses, and crime-related costs. So, when your local drug addict gets a felony let's give them something to fall on to a sober home. Or you might as well diagnose us with Chronic Wasting Disease because without the help and support that we so imperatively need were not going to make it!!

The main point is to help others and give them the sincere change they deserve. Life is stressful enough giving them a place to go to ease the pressure. Everyone has a number. Going to meetings or being in a sober house will help to build their number (days of sobriety) give them the capital they deserve. One sip or hit could blow it all away. They worked their asses off to get the number they’re at and to think it could be poofed away in seconds. With guidance at their side the once unobtainable can be accomplished. Let’s watch those numbers go up together in delight to see the happiness on their faces.

Now let me ask you, if you were a Care Bear, What would you stare at????
