Changing the Conversation About Heroin Addiction

Changing the Conversation About Heroin Addiction: A Message From Mikela Ryan


Tonight at 9 PM EST a new documentary is airing on MTV - one that could change the conversation about heroin addiction and the epidemic that is killing our nation. It is called Prescription for Change: Ending America's Opioid Crisis. In this documentary rapper Macklemore, a recovering addict himself, travels to Washington, D.C. to speak with President Obama about the issue on a national level. He also travels out to Seattle, WA, one of the most afflicted cities in our nation, to meet with young, recovering addicts at their school. This is really the amazing part - these young people are attending a school in the Seattle Public School System just for them. It is called Interagency Recovery School and guess what....IT IS WORKING. Who would have thought...let's take a bunch of kids struggling with the same issues who can relate to one another and put them in a clean, supportive environment full of resources....sounds like a no brainer to me. Unfortunately, not much is known about this type school. Hopefully this documentary will change that and open everyone's eyes. This is an attainable, realistic goal. This can work all over the nation and we need to make it happen. We must end this epidemic and we can do that together.

I cant wait to check out some of these blogs! I’ve really wanted to start learning more about cars and auto repairs lately and I think this will help a lot. I think it can save my family some money if we knew how to do some repairs at home.! Thanks again for all the options.
