Alcohol Ranked Most Harmful Drug

You think other drugs contribute to abuse--check this out!


Alcohol Ranked Most Harmful Drug: "Alcohol Ranked Most Harmful Drug
November 2, 2010


A group of British scientific experts has concluded that when combining its effects on the individual and on society, alcohol far outpaces other substances as the most harmful drug, the Associated Press reported Nov. 1.

The Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, meeting via an interactive workshop, used multicriteria decision analysis to evaluate drugs' effects on the body and their impacts on society, including effects on families and on costs in areas such as health care and corrections. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine were ranked in the analysis as the most lethal drugs to the individual, but alcohol, heroin and crack were judged most harmful to others.

Portraying domestic abuse in song

September 6, 2010 by Karen Blyton

For six weeks and counting, “Love the Way You Lie” has been No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, and the song’s music video has garnered more than 77 million views on YouTube.
What makes the song and the music video  controversial is that both Eminem and Rihanna have had their own experiences with abusive relationships.

Eminem depicted his relationship with ex-wife Kim Mathers in his song “Kim,” off his third studio album, “The Marshall Mathers LP,”  whose lyrics reflect fantasies about murdering a woman named Kim.
More notably, Rihanna unofficially became the face of domestic-violence victims in 2009 when R&B star Chris Brown, Rihanna’s former boyfriend, was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service for assaulting Rihanna just before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

The real success of the song and music video is due to Rihanna’s haunting words that she sings in the song’s hook
“Just gonna stand there/ and watch me burn/ But that’s alright/ because I like the way it hurts/ Just gonna stand there/ and hear me cry/ But that’s alright/ because I love the way you lie.”
Marjorie Gilberg, the executive director of Break the Cycle, a nonprofit that works to end teen violence, told the Washington Post in an Aug. 10 article, “The danger is that pop culture defines our social norms. We don’t want the message of this song to be that this kind of relationship is acceptable. So this song has to be viewed in the context of real information from adults, like parents and teachers.”

Free Reconsrtuctive Surgery

(I'm blogging my own site!!!!)

Can Saving Faces help you?

The Discovery Channel is currently trying to locate an individual who is a victim of domestic abuse and in need of treatment to remove the final scars in order to restart her life. We recognize the difficulty of locating the correct person for this program and wonder if it is your someone you know? We are not only searching for someone who has been educated to the co dependency issues of domestic violence and worked on their inner healing and empowerment, but also, someone who would not be endangered by exposure through programming. That said, our staff is committed to helping an abused woman receive this amazing opportunity to move forward through this surgical renewal.
