The theme I have chosen is Family and Family services. The specific family service I have chosen is Drug and Alcohol treatment for teens. This theme is important to me for many reasons. Drugs are everywhere and really damage a person’s life. They destroy homes, tear families apart and take mothers and fathers from their children. I feel like they make people numb from feeling. I want to help kids that are dealing with substance abuse, to help them see there is more to life and life can be great.
I am trying to volunteer at Daybreak Teen Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center. Their website is http://www.daybreakinfo.org. I hope to be able to get hands on experience with the teens that go to daybreak.
I want to learn more about substance abuse, how to help people during their treatment and more on way people do drugs in general.
