NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness
NAMI is the number one advocate for the mentally ill and those suffering emotional disorders in the US.
Their representatives and volunteers can be found most anywhere in this country from metropolitan areas to the most rural areas in America. Outside of my church, they are my number one charity. I have recommended them to several friends who were reaching out for help, and they have never failed to find Service regardless of individual financial circumstances.
At a time when we have relegated so many of our mentally ill to prison or homelessness, NAMI provides educational workshops and publications while fighting for funding. Congress continues to slash funding for the treatment of mental illness. it is up to people like you and me to help.
My mother left this earth a little over a dozen years ago. I honor her memory every year on Mother's Day and the anniversary of her birthday with a charitable contribution, regardless of my financial situation. [...]

Death by Methadone

Deadly abuse of methadone tops other prescription drugs
Fatal overdoses of methadone rose at a higher rate than those involving any other narcotic from 1999 through 2004, according to a recent study by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).  
2012 info on fatal methadone use from the CDC…Recent analyses have shown that methadone was involved in one in three opioid-related deaths in 2008 (7). Moreover, the involvement of methadone in drug overdose deaths, in toxic exposures quantified by poison centers, and in diversion to nonpatients is disproportionate to the number of methadone prescriptions for pain when compared with other opioid pain relievers (3,8).  
Personal Note: This mortality rate can be confirmed in countless more recent studies, with the trend continuing to the present time. The biggest problem we face is the lack of [...]

Walgreens Blows Dead Rats

Posted on April 24, 2015 with 0 comments
Walgreens pharmacies are a danger to the health and even lives of patients attempting to fill prescriptions. Since their $80 million fine for an unprecedented number of record-keeping and dispensing violations, flooding the black market with potent opioids, they have anointed themselves as controllers of all prescriptions. They seem to enjoy their power over the health and suffering of patients. I know personally of one case in which they caused a grand mal seizure by falsely informing a patient that their medication was ready for pickup. It wasn't. The patient had the seizure in the Walgreens while waiting for the refill. They refuse to dispense legal, medically necessary pain medications with their now publicized secret policy.
 But they routinely fail to fill prescriptions of all kinds on time, with different pharmacy employees giving different refill dates. They often fail to provide the correct number of pills, usually less (60 instead of 90). They fail to receive electronic prescriptions [...]

Out of Hand

Posted on April 19, 2015 with 0 comments
Hi, I’m Alan Ross Haynes. “Out of Hand” is my fourth full length album. It is Americana, with rockabilly, country folk, folk rock, some off-beat humor, as well as 3 subtly Spiritual songs. The other 12 cover many subjects, from first love to the death penalty, from funny songs about the beach and breakups to some unusual looks at homicide and aging. Above all, “Out of Hand” is intense and unique, acoustic in flavor yet with full instrumental arrangements.
