In light of the recent drug and alcohol addiction epidemic, major action has indeed been taken by organizations and individuals alike to do something about the problem. Now more than ever before, this nation has needed a serious and intensive approach to addressing drug and alcohol addiction and all of the problems and crisis issues that go along with it. Though drug and alcohol addiction is indeed a rapidly growing issue that is all but catastrophic, there have been at least some very good efforts to do something about it.
Jared Blake and his organization Live to Be are good examples of such an organization being utilized to effectively address substance abuse in this nation and its prevention. Jared Blake, country western musician, singer, songwriter, and guitarist has dedicated himself and his professional career to raising awareness for drug and alcohol addiction in this country and the intensive need to actually do something about it once and for all and for good.
Jared’s intention is to spread a message of abstinence and restraint from drug and alcohol abuse to as many school kids as he can, ranging in age from elementary children all the way up to college students. Jared Blake is serious about his efforts to address drug and alcohol addiction and its prevention, and he makes a point of including it in all of his concerts too. For example, one concert that is up and coming is his Muskegon, Michigan, Rebel Road Motorcycle Rally concert on Saturday 15 July 2017 at 9:00 PM to Saturday 15 July 2017 at 11:00 PM. You can be sure that he will be talking about substance abuse at this concert too.
Live to Be
Jared Blake started and co-operates the nonprofit organization Live to Be, which is an organization that promotes abstinence and restraint from the use and abuse of drugs and alcohol amongst school kids from elementary ages all the way up to college ages. To promote this campaign, Jared actually goes on tour with Live to Be and visits dozens of schools every year and speaks to around ten thousand students every year. He has been doing this for over three years now. Jared is very dedicated about this organization, because he is actively doing everything that he can to help kids and to make sure that kids do not go on to abuse drugs and alcohol and instead do something very productive with their futures rather than counterproductive.
SAFE Prevention, or S.A.F.E. (Stopping Addiction with Family Education) is an organization that is dedicated to providing information and data to the family members and loved ones of drug and alcohol addicts. SAFE found that it is the family members and loved ones of drug and alcohol addicts who often make the difference in whether or not a drug or alcohol addict actually does get into rehab or not. But the family members and loved ones of drug and alcohol addicts often do not understand drug and alcohol addiction as well as they should. SAFE Prevention provides all of the data and information necessary about drug and alcohol addiction to get people thinking with what they have to do and what they have to think with when they are trying to get their family member or loved one to go to rehab.
SAFE not only helps the family members and loved ones of drug and alcohol addicts, but SAFE also sponsors Live to Be. With Live to Be, Jared Blake, and SAFE all working together, the future for school kids might actually be a brighter one.
