Alcohol Abuse and Addiction  

Alcohol Abuse and Addiction
Despite its legality in the United States, alcohol is a highly addictive drug that millions abuse each year. Although some argue it has health benefits when consumed in moderation, research shows only two in every 100 people who drinks alcohol does so in moderation. The remaining drinking population often indulges in binge drinking, or drinking large amounts of alcohol in a short period of time, in order to get drunk. If a person experiences cravings for alcohol and cannot stop consuming it, they are likely experiencing alcohol addiction, or alcoholism. Alcoholism is a medical disorder, and drug addiction rehab is proven to treat the condition.

You’re able to shrug this off as pretty standard and keep going.
But when you turn to your kid, you see the panic and pain in their eyes, and you know a meltdown is coming.

But if your loved one is a senior or has a disability, you can’t afford to wait to “check in” — timing is everything during an emergency, and you need to buy them as much time as possible to react independently. You should create an emergency preparedness guide to keep them safe and accessible even as a crisis is unfolding.

It’s an old adage, but it’s true: Home is where the heart is. That’s why, according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), nearly 90 percent of seniors say they want to age in their own home. It’s also the reason that adults with disabilities would rather make accommodations to their own home in order to stay there after experiencing a life-changing disability, than move into a facility that can better accommodate their immediate needs.

Estate Planning for Parents of Children with Autism
As people grow older, especially parents, they begin to think about the future, and how their children will be provided for after they’re gone. For parents of children without developmental disabilities, this is easier, as those children can typically provide for themselves.However, when you have a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the issue becomes much knottier. Not only do you have to financially provide for that child after you’re gone, you must ensure they’ll be well taken care of and that your death does not compromise the child in any way other than the obvious emotional impact losing you will have.

Secondary and Side Effects of Vaping  

Secondary and Side Effects of Vaping
Many smokers are still confused by aspects of vaping, how it works, and whether or not it’s harmful to us and our bodies. Public Health England state that vaping is 95% safer than smoking tobacco, and is considered by many to be a ‘harm-reduction’ tool, rather than being absolutely one hundred percent safe.


When you notice someone standing on the street puffing away at their vape pen, do you stop and think for a second and say “ Hey that looks cool!” I don’t think any of us do. So, when we see celebrities such as Johnny Depp and Katy Perry doing it — maybe some of us start to change our opinions. Do we know any better? Do social influences add pressure to vaping just like there was to smoking?
