Voices of Addiction – Impact

Voices of Addiction Impact

What you will see below is a series of videos the DeannaRoseClarke foundation has created to help give loved ones of those afflicted with addiction a deeper understanding of the disease and maybe some tools to help connect with the afflicted person. Some of these videos have more adult themes and require you to approve playing the video. This creation is being called “Voices of Addiction Impact“. 

To help dispel the stigma of addiction, we present these stories of real people and their interaction with addiction. We want you to see, these are all human beings suffering from a disease. They didn’t choose to be an “addict” much like one would not choose to have cancer. This is a disease as well, just one of mind and body. There are many things that can help those suffering from addiction which can be seen in our Learning series. Experience the life of someone suffering from addiction and their loved ones. Open your mind and walk into their world.

About the videos:

Voices of Addiction is a means to give a voice to those suffering from Addiction. The words you will see and hear are those of someone suffering from their addiction with minor edits to convert to a video & speech for clarity. They type of addiction can be of just about any type, the disease is real and not isolated to an illicit drug although many are victims of this epidemic. These are publicly posted messages which are calls for help, rants, or shear exhaustion with their disease. Some of these stories are of those from the loved ones of those suffering so you can see the other side of addiction.

The Deanna Rose Clarke Foundation is bringing these calls to the public to share the pain and suffering of the afflicted. One theme that will be clear in these messages, the person suffering from the addiction does not want to be an addict, they just can’t figure out how to be rid of the disease. We want the general public to understand this is not a voluntary situation, but much like the terminal disease of cancer, people suffering from addiction can succumb to the same fate, but this isn’t their desire.

Please share this page with people who have someone who does not understand addiction and those suffering from addiction. We try to explore the human nature of this disease to help remove the stigma of this mental and physical disease. Once people start to understand addiction is a disease, only then will they start to help those suffering recover.
