Please Help Randy get a new shot at Life
Organized by: Amanda Al-Said
EVENT DATE Sep 01, 2014
I am asking all of my family & friends to join me in the awareness of opioid addiction. Many of us fail to comprehend the seriouness of dependency, and will not understand until the people you love are affected. As a student pharmacist, anger runs deep when refusing a sale of a controlled substance, knowing in the back of my mind, this patient is not in pain, but they're suffering with hard to overcome problems. I have found a solution; Teen Challenge USA is a non-profit, interdenominational, faith-based program ministering to people with life controlling problems.
Mission: To evangelize people who have life-controlling problems & initiate the discipleship process to the point where the student can function as a Christian in society applying spiritually motivated biblical principles to relationships in the family, local church, and the community. Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.
SPIRITUALLY- Teen Challenge deals with the person's problems as symptoms which relate to deeper issues & causes. Zeroing in on spiritual needs begins the real healing process. Faith in God gives hope & brings the "running" to a stop.
MENTALLY- Building an abused mind is of key importance. Consistent study of the Bible enhances mental healing & growth & serves as the foundation for the restructuring of broken down thought patterns, creating new, more stable ways of living.
The TeenChallenge program is not free. TeenChallenge is committed to raising the funds to cover the cost of care. Therefore, the student is responsible to pay an Intake Fee to cover the first month at $1,500 & an additional monthly commitment of $500.00 thereafter for 13 months. The Intake Fee helps cover costs such as housing, meals, transportation and other costs of student care.
If everyone gives something today, then lives can be changed. Do something AMAZING and help us help! Donations are tax-deductable.
This goes out to my brother Randy and everyone at TeenChallenge that I can reach.
