  • It's true that alcohol and drug abuse can destroy career, life and family. I have seen so many people who were very good persons in the society berofe and after alcohol or drug abuse, not only they have destroyed their life and family but Whole the society is suffering.

    Addiction Recovery Arkansas

  • Once an error is clearly and fully understood, it need not be repeated. Addiction is to the false Self. Drugs and Alcohol are just self-medication trying to alleviate the pain caused by that addiction .

  • The local presidential campaign staff, volunteers, and supporting elected officials are now gathering under the glow of TVs at bars, restaurants, and homes throughout Madison. The outcome of this primary, particularly on the Democratic side, could have significant repercussions when it comes to the ultimate nominees chosen to compete for the presidency this fall.

    Arkansas Alcohol Addiction Treatment

  • It's September 2011 and National Alcohol and Drug addiction Recovery month. Where we place our vote is extremely important. How else can we get our leaders to face the fact that substance abuse addictions are out of control these days, especially now with prescription drug dependencies. Unfortunately, many rehab centers focus on just getting a person off their substance. Let's get the word out that there are facilities out there that taper an individual off their addiction first while teaching them new and healthy habits such as weight training, martial arts, healthy eating habits, and learning new skills.

    Final Four Has Presidential Approval

    By edging Michigan in the final seconds Sunday, the University of Kentucky guaranteed that one school in the Final Four this year would be located in a state that was not carried by President Barack Obama in 2012. (Connecticut, Florida, and Wisconsin had previously earned Final Four slots over the weekend). Across the 76 Final Fours since 1939, an average of 3.1 schools have been located in states won by the president's ticket during the previous election cycle. All four schools have come from states won by the president 29 times, with the most recent being the 2009 Final Four featuring Connecticut, Michigan State, North Carolina, and Villanova. On 30 occasions three Final Four schools have been located in states won by the president, with two schools 11 times and only one school six times (the most recent being 2012 with Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, and Ohio State). There has never been a Men's NCAA Division I Final Four in which no schools were located in states carried by the president's ticket.


    Three for the Road

    A new Rasmussen Poll shows Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in a dead heat with likely 2014 Democratic nominee Mary Burke. Walker is seeking to win his third consecutive election after prevailing in 2012's recall contest. Eight of his predecessors accomplished this feat: Republicans Lucius Fairchild (in 1869), Jeremiah Rusk (1886), Robert La Follette (1904), Emanuel Philipp (1918), John Blaine (1924), Walter Kohler (1954), Warren Knowles (1968), and Tommy Thompson (1994). Three others Badger State governors lost on their third campaign: Democrat George Peck (1894), Progressive Philip La Follette (1938), and Republican Julius Heil (1942). One died in office before having the opportunity to win a third contest (GOPer Walter Goodland in 1947) while another resigned beforehand (Democrat Patrick Lucey in 1977 to become Ambassador to Mexico). Overall Wisconsin gubernatorial incumbents have won 35 of 47 general election contests, or 74.5 percent of the time.
