Quite fervently and proud of his sobriety, Rob Lowe hits a dubsmash (a lip synching app) out of the park, singing to the sound of music. A galant and poised and most recognizable Lowe of the 90's, Rob seems to be portraying an amazing zest for life and we commend him for this sober living lifestyle gusto.

Treatment centers are attending this problem and supporting the recovery with sober living, safe housing that is overseen by organizations such as the sober living network and ccapp. More focus on long term plans and supporting families need to be addressed for it is illogical that a problem that arises from months and up to years can be detained in 30 days.

A heroin ring seems to have been a problem in the New York prison where the inmates escaped with supposed support of correctional staff. Heroin use is escalating and its manifestation must be obvious within the correctional facilities. It is interesting to see if there is any attention to drug and alcohol use within as well as the support to have those within the system transition back into society. Recovery programs are very archaic within prison, limited to 12 stem meetings and faith based interventions. Can we implement telemedicine? Tele-counseling? Where can technology, a very low cost investment to outcome ratio, be implemented? As always, change is needed and the way we have been doing things will not take us to the vision we have as a country and community, there must be support for the unattended and uninsured if there is to be progress in general.

Hillary Clinton's team seems to be placing a higher level of attention to substance use disorders, formerly known as addiction and alcoholism, with the heroin and methamphetamine epidemic in rural America. Seems like awareness is at senate level and permeating the verbiage of the candidate, hoping that their words get placed into action. What's great is that, apart from using google hangouts (pretty tight to be staying current and involving multiple brainstorming), their focus is on decriminalizing lower drug offenses, placing a priority for mental health and attention to treatment rather than incarceration. Great step guys. Now go do it.

The stories of hope in recovery from addiction and alcoholism, presently known as substance use disorders, are very real. The impact of school on the turnaround is very real and rarely heard (as well as employment). The challenge is finding these colleges that are willing to give individuals second chances as well as accommodating programs to fit someone hurting from alcohol abuse or drug addiction right into their classes. Heres a thumbs up to those opening their doors, for those who change will impact thousands in their new journey.

What is Kratom? Well, since its not scheduled nor illegal, you don't have to worry until something horrible happens. Such as the suicide of this teen, or the huge amounts being sold as supplements to those seeking a natural high (or in common terms anxiety relief). Found at supplement stores (even gas stations) this substance cannot be tested in a typical 12 panel, you have to send off to a lab to confirm the blood level. It is very important to begin attending the production, manufacturing and importing of this substance as well as being aware of its effects.

Thank you dear Candace for enlightening huffington post readers on your experience with addiction and your unique take on recovery. There was nothing on diagnosis, severity, research nor reliable accounts. Yes, yet another beautiful way to emotional arouse a reader who is urging either education or
