A major problem is that few people know about the existence of these programs”

    Shaheen,

    Thanks for the time and effort put to include my post in the carnival.

  • Cristian

    Does anyone have a link to a website or anything that could help me with some information about therapies used in a drug and alcoholic treatment center because I am very interested in this matter.

  • Ada

    This is the first time I have heard of mouse party I must try it out. It sounds like a fantastic way to clear up the misconceptions young people will have on drugs and hopefully discourage them from drug addiction. I totally agree with the exercise comment. It naturally releases chemicals that make you feel better. Anti-depressants have always worried me I had them once and they just created this ‘numbing’ effect which didn’t help me at all.
