Transcript of Opiates in the Neighborhoods

Opiates in the Neighborhoods Effects: loss of self control decline in the education system physical and mental problems relationship issues financial issues manipulation aches school becomes unimportant spends everything on the drugs becomes desperate not a priority
second class to the drugs Key Notes: $150-$250 per day What we need to do: So...what is the problem? being misused and abused spreading throughout neighborhoods reaching masses no place for people to just seek assistance there are rehab centers, but no places to just talk
no place to get away from drug influence chain reaction reaching new neighborhoods
more people are getting involved overdoses
short and long term effects
addiction death in Shorewood quickly happens grown in heroin recently used as a cheaper alternative to other drugs the "end-all" drug a side effect of prescription drug abuse $80 per pill. $4 per hit. "start locally, act globally" One neighborhood at a time facility focused on assistance rather than rehabilitation place for people to go to get away from the pressures of opiates art groups
expressing oneself safe place designed for people of all ages Reaching everyone from young to old Goals: provide a place where people can get away
from pressures of neighborhood provide resources and assistance to people
wondering where to go or what to do with
their addiction or usage provide groups to engage people of all ages
and utilize their time effectively How this facility is going to be put into place: 1. one facility will be built in a neighborhood 2. funding will come from either the city, donations,
or various sponsors, such as the D.A.R.E.(Drug Abuse Resistance
Education) program 3. the facility will be monitored for effectiveness
and new plans and ideas will constantly be put into place
to make it a more dynamic and fufilling place 4. once a facility has been established and is well on
it's way, a new facility will be built to accomodate the
needs of a different neighborhood 5. when a city has a number of these facilities, we will branch off into other cities, and eventually other states How is this going to happen? the state, charities, or sponsors will
support us in running a free facility for
those who are in need of it donations will be accepted by people
who use the facility, as well as local people What could go wrong? funding will be difficult at first, because some people
will not understand our mission or will object to the
building of a new facility focused on assistance of opiate users people may mistake us as a rehabilitation center, rather than a facility focused on assistance and keeping people away from opiates not understanding what we are there for may create confusion and a misunderstanding, possibly resulting in hostile feelings towards the purpose of the facility once we have established a running and effective facility, it will begin a chain reaction to building more facilities we need the support of the local neighborhoods in order to make this facility a success we will work with the neighborhood in order to accomodate both us and them, resulting in a good relationship with the community that we would be entering the neighborhood that we build the facility
in may not be enthusiastic about us coming into
their neighborhood we are willing to make compromises in order to
make the neighborhood a better place for
everyone to be what we would need to run the facility: funding from an outside source (the state, charities, various sponsors) a pre-existing building and materials to refurbish the interior/exterior, or the materials to build a new building specialists that have education and experience in dealing with opiate users people who are willing to run the groups and a staff who will work a 24-hour schedule, so as to provide round the clock support for people in the neighborhoods Bibliography: "Drug Statistics."

pressures of opiates in the neighborhoods to engage people in something meaningful instead of using drugs to provide assistance to those who do not know what to do with their opiate problem to direct people to the correct facilities in order to recieve treatment
