There is certainly no doubt that drug and alcohol addiction has gotten to be a very serious and a very concerning problem in this country, one of which needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Drug and alcohol addiction has now statistically been labeled as the single most concerning aspect and factor of the health and vitality of the American people. Obviously, this is a problem that definitely does need to be addressed quickly and as soon as possible.
As drug and alcohol addiction has become such a serious issue, certain individuals and groups have come forward and pledged themselves to doing something about the problem. One such person who has made waves in the recovery community has been Jared Blake. He has worked hard to spread his anti-substance abuse message to as many young adults, teens, children, adolescents, and fans as he can.
Each time Jared Blake delivers a performance, he gives a speech and discussion about drug and alcohol addiction and his efforts to do something about this problem once and for all and for good.
For example, Jared Blake performed a great show in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and he delivered his message there too. Here are the details on the show:
- Cape Canaveral, FL: Nashville Cartel at Victory Casino
- Saturday 22 July 2017 5:00 PM to Saturday 22 July 2017 11:59 PM
- 180 Christopher Columbus Dr.
Cape Canaveral, FL 32920
Terminal B-2 Port Canaveral
At this show, like the other ones he plays at, Jared spoke of raising awareness about drug and alcohol addiction and on trying to get his message across to kids, adolescents, teens, and young adults the most of all.
Live to Be
Jared Blake works closely with his nonprofit organization, Live to Be. Live to Be helps Jared tour across the United States in his quest to spread his anti-substance abuse message. The goal and the mission of Live to Be is to perform in as many American schools as possible and to get Jared Blake in front of as many kids as possible. Currently, Jared performs for about ten thousand kids a year in dozens of different schools nationwide.
The Live to Be message is very different from what most people think of when they think of an anti-substance abuse campaign. The Live to Be approach really focuses on instead getting students to realize what their goals are and what they want to do with their lives. The whole mission of Live to Be is to get students motivated about their futures, aspirations, and dreams. The theory behind Live to Be is that if students are motivated about their futures and are constantly working towards them, they will be far less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol.
SAFE (Stopping Addiction with Family Education)
SAFE Prevention, or SAFE (Stopping Addiction with Family Education), is another nonprofit drug and alcohol prevention group that now sponsors Live to Be and Jared Blake’s campaign. SAFE (Stopping Addiction with Family Education) is an online resource of education, information, forums, and blogs that seek to help the family members of drug and alcohol addicts to learn more about addiction and to learn about what they can do to address drug and alcohol abuse and addiction in their loved ones.
SAFE (Stopping Addiction with Family Education) works diligently with Live to Be and Jared Blake to get the message of freedom from drug and alcohol abuse and addiction and hard work and perseverance out there into the community as much as is possible. This message is well-received, and the groups intend to keep going with this message for as long as is possible.
