The Chinese Bamboo Tree

It takes daily watering and nutrition with five years of care before a Chinese Bamboo tree breaks the surface of the ground.  Then it takes 9 weeks for it to grow 95 feet tall. The lesson is that we do today what will grow tomorrow, staying true to ourselves, our values and faith. Even when we see nothing, we know something is growing which will be later the reward for what we do today. 

The Bamboo Tree is our philosophy in providing the Families Impacted by Opioids and other addictions. We plant the seed, it takes time to nurture, then the results are seen.

 It starts with a seed of knowledge and a willingness to change. 

Our field for planting is when we get together as one community to support the families on their journey with substance use disorders.  By doing this we are taking the first step towards "empowering" as our respond in a proactive, forward thinking, leaning support for family centric care. This is a community epidemic, it will take a community solution.


We need to  meet them where they gather:


The Family ~ Learns the  Key issues family members will face and how to develop skills and use tools.


The School ~ Reviews two groundbreaking coping skills development "Preventure  Program" 


The Cities ~  Learn services they can provide that support the family members in their journey.  


The Church ~ Learn how to provide a ministry for the family members in their church, which are on this journey of substance use disorder.


Personal Note: My family suffered through addictions and our family system was significantly damaged from it, like so many others. We would have been so much better off if the concepts of "Families Impacted by Opioids" instruction and materials were provided to us. I want your family to have the advantage of what we never had, to help you and your family members in their life journey. If just one family life is improved by this work, then my mission is satisfied.  Roy P. Poillon, Founder Families Impacted by Opioids.
