Quest series is a growing platform working to truly bring a fresh narrative to the addiction/recovery community, where the mental health of so many struggling with addiction find resources nearly unavailable.
This I wanted to changed if I could.
I began forming my first book almost 7 years ago. What began as a journey to bring awareness to the youth facing the choice of all the downfall drugs, crime and the consequences of both would befall upon them. I soon realized that would not be enough to truly make a difference.
Bringing my own story of escape from the world of drugs, crime and the devastating consequences I faced during 25 years of using, I laid out the many things that were needed to be corrected in order to have the life they wanted, the things that drugs and substance abuse had stolen from them. Though this too, was not enough.
Quest s.e.a.l. guide, brought the facts of how drug use began, the origins and cultures which have used powerful substances for hundreds of years as just a part of everyday life. Though most of the world was not ready for the impact that it would unleash upon them.
Wars made the use of these powerful substances for medical needs and pain relief a welcomed thing at first, though like most things that cause addiction of every kind, that ‘feel good’ feeling, was so appealing, it was to hard to quit after the true need of its medical purposes had been eliminated.
Today the world faces a epidemic of drug abuse and we must work to fix this reality, before we lose another generation to these powerful substances and most often lethal endings.
The Quest paradigm challenges a lot of well worn assumptions about drug use and addiction. The truth is, when all of the available evidence is evaluated and not just cherry picked to support the status quo of conventional modes of intervention and treatment, it will be obvious why the problem is now bigger than ever.
And sadly, there is ample evidence to support this upward trend will continue as more youth start using and abusing lethal substances, more of our good citizens fill jails and prisons, and more people die everyday from O.D. than from old age.
Quest is a new perspective on substance abuse and addiction. A new perspective that says its time to treat the cause of this out of control social illness and stop treating endless individual symptoms unsuccessfully.
Quest RME guide book, is due out by late summer, and will add a new paradigm from the other side of the desk in this fight against addiction, mental health issues and bring a better path forward for all.
Join us in this fight against addiction.
