Red Ribbon Week at Edmond Doyle

10-23-2018

All of us at Edmond Doyle would love to see drug and alcohol abuse stopped. We all know too well how it affects families in our community, state, and country. It is a problem many people do not want to discuss, however, it is an issue that must be addressed. We are providing information to help combat this problem. If you know someone that suffers from an addiction, please share the information...asking for help is the first step to solving the problem. If you suffer from addiction, please seek help immediately. Every child deserves a family free from addiction. We want all of our children to have childhoods from which they do not need to recover....a family free of addictions is a great start to a great childhood. If we can help in any way--please let us know.


METH


An addiction to meth can take over your life and destroy your health, career, relationships, finances, and overall well-being. Seeking help for a meth addiction is the first step toward becoming sober and kicking your addiction for good. Calling a meth hotline can be a beneficial way to obtain free, nonjudgmental, and confidential information about available treatment and rehab resources to help you get clean.1

Meth hotline numbers connect you with consultants who want you to get the best help possible and won’t judge, lecture, or criticize you—they know that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. They will listen to your concerns and provide you with information about treatment programs, local support groups, and community-based organizations.

ALCOHOL


Are You Addicted to Alcohol?

Many people experiencing the ill effects of their drinking behavior frequently wonder if they have a problem that needs professional attention. Hotline staff frequently can help answer questions like these--for this reason alone, it might be a good idea to make the call. If you are asking yourself similar questions, chances are, at the very least, you are experiencing some difficulties related to alcohol abuse. For both those questioning the seriousness of an alcohol problem and those who have accepted that a problem exists, but are unsure of how to proceed in seeking treatment, a call to a hotline can provide some answers. Hotline information can help one make an informed decision about an existing alcohol addiction or dependency and about seeking further help, such as inpatient alcohol rehab.

OPIATE ABUSE

Heroin and prescription painkiller medications are addictive narcotic drugs that are classified as opiates because they either derive from or resemble opioid alkaloid substances originally sourced from the opium poppy. Opiate addictionclaims thousands of lives every year—recent research shows that opiates were involved in 33,091 deaths in 2015 alone 1.

Opiate addiction hotlines are lifelines to many who feel their opiate addiction is out of control. Today, hotlines abound for good reason. Never have we needed opiate helplines like we do today given our nation’s current epidemic.

Hotlines can quickly connect you to a trained treatment consultant, even if you need to talk at 3 a.m. Depending on the hotline, the person at the other end of the line can:

  • Talk you through a crisis.
  • Provide you with people and places to contact for further help.
  • Give you information about how to help a friend or family member. Opiate helpline calls are completely confidential.
