  • Addiction Treatment Lifeline - Addiction Guide is one of the only educational websites founded by a recovering addict, an addict's spouse, and a board-certified addiction doctor.  Over 100,000 Americans have died of a drug overdose during the pandemic, and so we created this website with a clear mission - we want to save lives.  Please click here for more information.
  • Resources for Preventing Memory Loss - The reasons behind memory loss can vary from person to person. For some, it may be due to natural signs of aging, while for others, it may be correlated with early signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia.  Memory loss is common and can happen at multiple stages of life. Luckily, there are various exercises and brain games to improve working memory.  Through this website, you will find information on the different ways to prevent memory loss, information on memory disorders, and additional resources to help spread awareness about memory loss prevention.

Resources for Senior Citizens

  • Independent Living vs. Assisted Living - These two types of senior living arrangements can be very similar, so it is important to understand what each facility offers before making a decision about where you or your loved one will live.  For more information please click on the following link:

  • Nursing Home Abuse Guide - Nursing home abuse is a horrifying reality happening in our communities and affecting our senior citizens. When we place our elder loved ones in a nursing home, we expect staff members to treat them with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. With over 15,000 nursing homes housing 1.7 million licensed beds across the United States as of 2016 and current residents totaling upwards of 1.3 million as of 2015, nursing homes and staff need to be held accountable for how they care for our older generations. Therefore, it's crucial to understand what nursing home abuse is, the different types of abuse, signs of abuse, and how to prevent it.
