If accepted into the MSP Angel Program, the individual will be guided through a professional substance abuse assessment and intake process to ensure proper treatment placement.

An ANGEL VOLUNTEER who is a member of the local community will be present to support the individual during the process and to provide transportation to the identified treatment facility.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

The Science Of Addiction, 2017

1  3.3 Million worldwide die each year from alcohol.
2  The nation’s escalating opiate crisis is painfully evident in hospitals where 1 in 5 newborns have been exposed to heroin or other drugs while in the womb.
3  Addiction is a disease, not a moral failing!
4  Addiction is possible without drugs!
5  Emotional well being is just as important as exercise and a healthy diet.
6  We need to be concerned about the level of stress in our country. Prioritize positive emotions like LOVE and let go of anger, anxiety and fear!
7  91 Americans die each day from opiate overdoses.
8  Many psychiatrists believe the best way to treat addiction is contemplation practice – mindfulness, meditation and other methods that bring awareness to what someone is doing and feeling, especially self-defeating behaviors.
9  The brain can rebuild itself – an amazing thing!
10  Many more babies are treated for opioid withdrawal as they struggle to overcome the powerful effects of addictive drugs on their brains.
