A MUST WATCH & SHARE REGARDING ADDICTION, TREATMENT, AND AWARENESS! “We’re talking about our most significant health issue in this country. And we’re blind to it. Because if you look at all the different kinds of issues involved: it’s our most expensive thing medically; it’s our biggest problem socially; it’s our biggest problem in schools; it’s our biggest source of crime; and it’s our biggest source of injury for children. We as a culture do not want to deal with it.” - Dr. Patrick Carnes
