Quick Guide on Opioid Abuse and Addiction

Opioid abuse and addiction have become major problems in the United States. The Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the federal agency that studies drug abuse, describes opioid abuse now as "a public health epidemic with devastating consequences."

Opioids are chemically similar to endorphins, chemicals that the body produces naturally and give you the rush you sometimes feel with exercise, stress, or certain foods. Thus, opioids often make people feel very happy and euphoric. As a result, they often use opiods to get high.

Quick Guide to Alzheimer's & Dementia

As a result of the population shifts taking place in the U.S., more and more people are living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

Alzheimer's is  not  a normal part of aging, although the risk for developing it increases with age.   Although dementia usually occurs in aging persons, it can occur at any adult age. While there is no cure for Alzheimer's, early diagnosis and treatment can be helpful for life planning and disease control.

While Alzheimer's cannot be cured or reversed, some treatments can improve or slow the development of symptoms.

Men's Health Issues

Because men have been breadwinners, protectors, soldiers, fathers and husbands for centuries, they have been taught to be strong and firm, thus withstanding pain and images of weakness. This has led to a culture of their ignoring their own health and well-being in the name of manhood.

Because we know that "Men's Health is Power", we are committed to giving special attention to improving the physical, mental and spiritual health of men of color.
