WWhat If ......

What if...  the flow of a family's Journey in substance use disorder was known by the family in defining each of the 12 key stress issues they will possibly face along the way.  


What if...  they could identify how to define an issue, how the issue impacts their family, how to prepare for the issue, who is here to help the family and what to expect as a possible outcome.  


What if...  this became their new coping skill (how to breakdown an issue) which is reinforced by using a simple step by step tool.  Let's say they could do all this from their empowerment through education which they received and thereby, learned how not to be victimized by this epidemic. That their new reality is to get in front of these issues and take control by using their newly acquired  knowledge. 


What if...  each family had a plan in how to use The four primary family support structures from within their local community.  


How about if... their community also learned these skills and together they build services  and networks that specifically addressed the family members needs in their journey with addiction:  1. City/Community professionals/ Agencies Services, 2. Schools, 3. Faith Organizations.   We believe this activity will breakdown the stigma and allow the families a safe space to come and learn, grow and unite, by standing up to stand together as a community of one in our drug epidemic.  


Can we agree... The key to do this is EMPOWERMENT of the family thru knowledge,  We need to go to the "Addiction & Family Empowerment Conferences".  we need to share in the "Best of the Cities Bests Practices", we need to provide Faith Based Organizations a universal model for  "Invest in the Family" ministry outreach, and present learning tracks for the family members through "The Family Solution Finder" education seminars for the family though providers and organizations like yours.
