Opiates are drugs that include the following substances: morphine, heroin, opium, and hydrocodone. These drugs disrupt the central nervous system, causing the brain to stop producing endorphin. Opiates then take place of endorphins in the body which then causes the body to stop producing endorphins all together. The result is a need and craving for the drug to feel at best "normal."

I have been tired on and off for several months. Usually, when I become consistent with exercising, it increases my energy level, but it’s not happening. I’m going to get some blood work done to see what’s going on.
AFRS Success Story: I am an addict. My drug of choice was oxycontin. I’ve suffered from depression since I was a teenager; at that age, life is difficult enough without your brain chemistry being off balance. I used drugs as a crutch to forget the feelings of loss, trauma and self-loathing. At first, they did an excellent job of making me feel okay but before long, I became physically dependent and couldn’t function without getting high.
I wanted to stop but didn’t know what to do, fortunately, my family intervened in my life and convinced me to seek treatment. Thankfully, getting treatment lead me to understanding why I felt the need to use and gave me the tools to change my life.
Today I am over five years clean from drugs thanks to the guidance I received and the work I’ve been willing to put in. Don’t be afraid of treatment, life is so much better sober!

According to NAMI (@namicommunicate), “...2 million people with mental illnesses are booked into jails each year. Nearly 15% of men and 30% of women booked into jails have a serious mental health condition... The vast majority of the individuals are not violent criminals.” There are not enough psychiatric hospitals to care for all mentally ill patients, but prisons aren’t an appropriate environment for them. Prison is a place for dangerous criminals, not the mentally ill.
While GROW Foundation has a focus on helping women (and their children, if applicable) with overcoming domestic violence and the hurdles that often accompany it, we will not turn away a male that comes to us for assistance as well. 1 in 4 men have experienced a form of intimate partner and 1 in 7 have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner. As we’ve stated before, DV has no face and knowing this means knowing male victims/survivors deserve just as much of a fight as their female counterparts. Thank you to every man that has reached out to G.R.O.W. and trusted us with your story. We know it isn’t easy by far and though it may not seem like it at times, help is available for you. For those in the 757 area, @ywcashr in Norfolk has a men’s support group every 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 5:30p-7:00p. Please call 757-625-4248 for more information. For those in and out of the area, you may call The National Domestic Violence Hotline 1- 800-799-SAFE (7233) for more available resources. Remember, YOUR story matters too!
Thanks @coachingtools for this thought-provoking question! So much of what we avoid is kept secretly inside us. Little by little this eats away our joy, happiness and causes irritibalitity and agitation. Be brave. Face what you're avoiding. Do it with support of a friend, coach or therapist, but do it. Clear your mind. Cleanse your soul. Face your truth.
You may have heard of the piriformis muscle (and piriformis syndrome), but did you know that it’s only one of the six small muscles that perform essentially the same movement? The six deep external rotator muscles of your hip are the piriformis, superior gemellus, inferior gemellus, obturator internus, obturator externus, and quadratus femoris. They all allow you to move your leg back and out, and to rotate your leg outward. When they are functioning properly, they don’t make the headlines. But when they become aggravated through overuse or injury, they can press on the sciatic nerve (or worse, become “glued” to the nerve thanks to adhesions.) How do they get injured? It’s the end result of a long chain of compensations!!! Generally starts with tight hip flexors. Once they become injured they reciprocally inhibit the muscles on the opposite side of the joint.
