    Substance abuse must be one of the hardest things to stop once started. Many times it's got to the stage where it could not be stopped and has caused a lot of deaths. Information like this would be ideal and very helpful in schools as if they got it into young minds before they start just maybe it would give them an understanding of how bad substance abuse is. More people need to know the facts as they know the dangers of it before they decide to use it. Not everyone will listen but there's always that few that will and some life's that will be saved. More help is needed to solve these issues.

Just as my attendance with the parent teacher conference. As Kelly K. Ross, a suicide -domestic violence survivor, batterer, a Rosebud Santee Sioux & Navajo Nation-Apache tribal member.

    Substance abuse seems to have a devastating effect on the user and their families, often very tragic ending, sadly it isn't enough to stop them even though they are often aware that they can be fatal.
