Victims of the Opioid Crisis

As you probably know by now, we are in the midst of an opioid crisis.  Experts have estimated 10.3 million Americans aged 12 and older misused opioids last year, including 9.9 million prescription pain reliever abusers and 808,000 heroin users.  Additionally, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has reported that more than 130 people died every day from opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016 and 2017. Unfortunately, my friend’s younger brother falls into these sobering statistics.  A star football player in college, he went on to be a successful engineer in his twenties and early thirties.   But as the years went on, his old football injuries kept nagging him, resulting in chronic pain he dealt with on a daily basis.  He turned to pain pills for relief, but soon bega...

Rehab – Getting Sober [Video]

He spent over $1M on drugs before getting sober Written by Fiona Sinclair Scott, CNNLondon One of the last parties that DJ Fat Tony played was Brooklyn Beckham's 21st birthday, held in a giant glass marquee at David and Victoria Beckham's family home in the English countryside. After that, he performed at the legendary London venue Ministry of Sound. Then, the city went into lockdown. DJ Fat Tony -- real name Tony Marnach -- is a mainstay of London's events party scene, often providing the music (sometimes with help from his friend and occasional DJ partner, Kate Moss) at fashion weeks, celebrity birthday parties (he's played for Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson) and countless club nights.

TV cops know their job is changing. Some are more ready than others.

Cops on television have a duty. Yes, actors report to dressing rooms and not crime scenes — and sure, they stop protecting and serving the moment their directors yell “cut.” But for hundreds of millions of viewers around the globe, these “officers” are trusted guides to understanding American justice, which they roll out as an action-packed, morally-right freight train night after night. Only now, it might be coming off the rails. As protests against police brutality and systemic racism continue across the United States, TV cops and their fictional precincts have come under fire. From half-joking cries to defund the PAW Patrol to serious reflections on Hollywood’s historic whiteness, entertainment fans and professionals are using their platforms to amplify the Black Lives Matter movement. ...

Explosion of online child sexual abuse imagery [Video]

Child sexual abuse images and online exploitation surge during the pandemic With tech companies' moderation efforts constrained by the pandemic, distributors of child sexual exploitation material are growing bolder, using major platforms to try to draw audiences.

Teens Drug and Alcohol Rehab [Video]

Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Teens Reviewed by Dr. Keerthy Sunder, MD, DFAPA Being a teenager isn’t easy.

How to Help a Clingy Child Play Independently

Your clingy child won't play independently? In this post, you'll learn how play therapists help increase kids capacity for play – and how you can too at home.   A parent I was working with once said, “My child would still want more from me if I was watching over her and doing nothing else for 24 hours per day!” What parent doesn’t feel that way?! Children have a huge need for our undivided attention, and an appetite for us that can never be completely filled. But to stay sane and be able to parent from a centered place, parents need times when they aren’t focusing on their kids. Parents need breaks too. So how can you meet your child’s needs for play and your attention? When is it reasonable to ask them to play on their own? What do you do when they can’t play without you? Let’s star...
