Malibu, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2014 -- Sam's Watch, a non-profit organization in Indianapolis joined with the National Institute on Drug Abus e to fight drug abuse among teens. Sam's watch gives Saving Alert Messages on all the dangers and harm that drug abuse can cause to young people.
According to Jeanne Motsay, President of Sam's Watch and the mother of Sam Motsay, a 16-year old academic honours athlete who died from using a little known synthetic drug which started the non-profit organization, "National Drug Facts Week provides an opportunity for young people to get science-based information about drugs and their effect on the body. But that can happen only if schools participate. I urge students and parents to encourage their school leaders to participate in National Drug Facts Week. It will save lives."
The National Drug Facts Week gives opportunities to young people to be scientifically knowledgeable in drug information to make sure that it brings them the much-needed awareness to stay away from drug addiction at a very young age. It brings together drug counsellors, education experts, scientists and parents. The National Drug Facts Week is being supported by numerous federal agencies such as the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and Mental Health Services Administration.
Programs such as this is also being supported by numerous drug counsellors like the very well-known Bob Forrest. He has always been the constant partner of Dr. Drew Pinsky and helped numerous teenage alcoholics and those who suffered from drug addiction. Bob Forrest believes that a positive environment and acceptance is the best way to overcome drug addiction. He is an advocate in providing a non-restrictive environment to further aid an addicted person's recovery. He knows that living free with supportive peers with low-pressure and non-judgmental environment are huge reasons why people under drug addiction treatment are on its way to fast-recovery.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse provides scientific approaches to the treatment of drug abuse. Bob Forrest, as a drug counsellor, believes that in addition to these scientific treatments, recovery is much faster with the human intervention. We have to put feelings, emotions, and value to the people who has been addicted for some time. This way they will have the opportunity to believe in themselves and feel that they are still accepted in the society despite what they have been through.
As Bob Forrest says, he wants to treat addicted persons with dignity, love, and compassion. These, he believes are the main factors for addicted people to live a good quality of life with a brighter perspective and a better vision of their future well-being.
