They are also great because the gas runs on diesel and you get 24mpg. There is this company in NYC Rent A Sprinter Van which has two locations in LGA and JFk who can accomodate all 15 passenger van rental needs.

Finding New Ways to Target Student Drinking in College Populations

These days it’s nearly a forgone conclusion that college students are going to start drinking. Alcohol on college campuses seems almost as commonplace as cramming for tests (if not more so), with some degree of alcohol abuse becoming a standard practice as soon as someone reaches college age. Yet alcohol abuse is always a problem, regardless of the control that the student believes they have, which is why alcohol outreach needs to figure out a better way of targeting college drinkers.

Focusing on Different Tools

As usual, it’s important to teach college students to abstain from alcohol. Their studies are far more likely to suffer and they are more likely to find themselves in dangerous situations if they’re out drinking – making it important to generally refrain from alcohol altogether.

But at the same time, programs designed to teach alcohol avoidance seem to be failing. Outreach that tries to convince college students not to drink is generally laughed at, as college students have been drinking for years, and the tradition is likely to continue.

Brainstorming Programs That May Be More Effective

College alcohol outreach programs may need to find some other way to reach these students without depending on alcohol abstinence. Perhaps these programs could focus on moderation instead, encouraging students to have no more than one or two drinks, even if they decide to drink often.

Since the health consequences are lower and the likelihood of addiction decreases, these types of programs may be more beneficial – and at the very least, they will teach young people to moderate in a way that they can take with them when they’re older. But college campuses and city governments may not be as fond of these ideas.

Finding the Right Way to Target Student Drinking

Regardless of what alcohol outreach programs decide to do, it’s clear that changes are necessary. College alcohol abuse is still extremely high, and is being treated like a tradition rather than a behavior that may harm the health and educational development of college students.

Whether it is teaching students to moderate better without discouraging drinking or finding a new way to encourage students to avoid drinking altogether, something needs to change if parents and educators want young college kids to avoid serious alcohol abuse and dependency both during college and afterward.

 

Alcohol Abuse Outreach Programs

Both alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse are serious problems in today’s society. The media tends to view alcohol positively, glorifying bars and parties that have excessive alcohol and binge drinking episodes. Many look at alcohol in a humorous light in movies like “The Hangover” and its sequel.

 

Yet alcohol abuse is a serious issue that can badly damage people’s lives and cripple their health, both emotionally and physically. While the occasional drink with a meal may be enjoyable, excessive alcohol consumption leads to serious problems and serious dependence – dependence that can be difficult to break. That is why it’s important for the community to provide alcohol outreach to those in need.

Help for Those Suffering From Alcohol Abuse

It’s difficult to give help to those suffering from alcohol abuse because alcohol is everywhere. Few people realize they have a problem, and those that do have a problem need to refrain from the temptation found in every restaurant and bar near their home in order to prevent relapse. Alcohol is everywhere, and trying to assist others in their recovery from alcohol abuse is constantly hampered by the prevalence of drinking in society.

But, although alcohol recovery is difficult, it’s absolutely possible. You simply need to get the person in touch with alcohol recovery programs and continue to provide them with non-stop support as they learn to live a life free of alcohol use.

Alcohol Abuse Outreach Programs

That is the strategy that alcohol outreach programs need to use to help others completely recover from severe alcohol abuse. The focus needs to not only be on helping alcoholics recover; it needs to be on preventing relapse by teaching people how to stay away from alcohol and reminding them how difficult it is to control themselves once they’ve had a taste. There also needs to be a focus on prevention and education, because the line between recreational drinking and alcohol abuse is very small.

Helping Those with Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol is a very real drug that can be difficult to control. With alcohol becoming such a widely publicized part of the culture, it’s important for alcohol outreach to target people that may have a problem, get them in touch with those that can help them recover, and continue placing them on a path to recovery with an emphasis on preventing relapse.

 

Benefits of More Open Community Gatherings

When most communities discuss the idea of outreach programs, they are looking at things like mental health disorders, homelessness, and other major issues that affect those in the city. While these issues certainly deserve attention, not all programs need to address major issues. Indeed, most of these issues are only addressed after they become serious issues. Yet there are ways that the community can help reduce the effects of these issues in advance – by focusing on social support.

How to Be Appealing to Someone You Like – No Matter What Crowd You Run With

One of the most agonizing experiences that everyone goes through in high school is liking someone who doesn’t like you back. I’d love to tell you that in 5 years it won’t matter, but on rare occasions that isn’t the case, and more importantly, no matter what I tell you – it’s never going to feel like it doesn’t matter at the time. I could also tell you that it builds character, but, like most things that “build character” heart ache like that sucks.

Helping Friends and Family of Those with Mental Illness

When someone suffers from a mental health problem, they rarely suffer alone. Often the friends and family of the person with the disorder experience constant stress and sadness, feeling helpless because they are unable to find ways to help the person they care about improve. That level of stress is not only harmful to their own mental health; it makes it harder for those that are suffering from mental illness to recover, as they become concerned about the affect they have on their loved ones.

Outreach for Those with Suicidal Tendencies

Suicide is an unfortunate consequence of mental health issues, and one that can often be avoided. The feeling is often caused by a feeling of being overwhelmed, aided by things like stressors and chemicals in the brain that are not functioning correctly – both of which can be treated with the right amount of help. That is why it’s important to link those that are suffering suicidal thoughts to treatment options fast.

Should Outreach Be Limited to Those with Diagnosable Disorders?

The field of mental health is broad. There are countless disorders that psychologists and psychiatrists try to treat using whatever empirically validated methods they have available. Many insurance agencies understand the medical relevance of these mental health disorders as well. Yet to qualify for a mental health disorder, you need to be diagnosed under various criteria set out by the DSM-IV-TR.

Understanding Anorexia: 5 Myths

1. “She’s just being stubborn”

Anorexics are known for having very strong, unbendable wills. But this doesn’t mean they are trying to be difficult on purpose or that they are just stubborn and rebellious. Anorexia is a disease. People who have it cannot control it and they cannot control the behaviors and attitudes they experience as a result of it. Anorexics often seem angry, moody or withdrawn. This is characteristic of the disease and also a result of being under-nourished. They often lash out, even at friends, or become unreliable and unpredictable. It’s important to understand they are not acting this way on purpose. Continue reading
