151 Janet Gourand: Tribe Sober - Inspiring a life without alcohol

I have the pleasure of talking to Janet Gourand, the founder of Tribe Sober. In Janet's words: 
Tribe Sober’s mission is to inspire an alcohol-free life.
Over the last 5 years, we have built a community of people who are changing their relationship
with alcohol. We have sober people, people who are struggling, people who are well on their way and
of course newbies. The beautiful thing is we are all helping each other to get (or stay) on track.
We provide workshops, coaching and challenges – but most of all we offer community.
Connection is the opposite of addiction and that’s why having a tribe works so well.
Our community is based on a membership program that offers a Chatroom, a Zoom Cafe, Sober Buddies, a Library, a Yoga Studio, Nutritional and Medical advice – and much more...

Survival Tuesday - 150 Rick Capriola - THE ADDICTED CHILD book may save a child’s life

The Addicted Child is a parent’s guide to adolescent substance abuse. It guides parents through the maze of teen addiction and gives them a roadmap to help their child through the diagnosis, treatment and recovery process.
In Rick's words: 
I have worked with adults and adolescents diagnosed with psychiatric and substance abuse disorders. I recently retired from Menninger Clinic in Houston Texas which is one of the nation’s top ten psychiatric hospitals. While at Menninger I worked with adults and adolescents diagnosed with psychiatric and substance use disorders.
Rick's 3 top tips
1. Mental health issues and substance abuse often accompany each other. It is important that both be treated. A treatment plan that addresses only the substance abuse but ignores the mental health issues is a treatment plan that is likely to fail
2. When a child is abusing alcohol or drugs it's important that parents obtain a comprehensive assessment that focuses not just on the substance use but also any accompanying mental health issues. The assessment must be comprehensive and address medical, psychological and addictions issues
3. Parents should carefully monitor their child and be aware of any changes they see. It’s important that parents stay tuned to changes in their child’s behaviours, attitudes, school performance and peers. Changes in these can sometimes signal a child who may be using substances.

147 Dawn Dines - Survival Tuesday - Drink Spiking

Spiking is a hugely under-reported problem that affects people the world over. Whether done by a friend as a ‘prank’, or with the intention of committing a far more serious offence, it’s wrong: we all have a right to know exactly what we’re putting into our bodies. 
That’s why Dawn established StopTopps, a UK-based nonprofit on a mission to stamp out drink spiking. She’s passionate about keeping vulnerable drinkers safe from opportunists and wants everyone to understand the dangers of drink spiking. 
Dawn Dines is the founder of Safe Original Style UK (SOS UK), the non-profit community interest company behind StopTopps. 
Dawn is passionate about empowering young people to keep themselves safe, by running educational workshops on alcohol & drug awareness, knife crime & anti-social behaviour cyberbullying and internet safety.
She has also worked with local authorities, supporting children in care and in secure units.
Dawn first pitched the idea of anti-drink-spiking lids on the BBC series Dragon’s Den and took the advice of Peter Jones that it would be more effective as a social enterprise, hence the creation of SOS UK..
