I know you will find this hard to believe but I occasionally get a little long in the pen…lol. I have so much information from my 25 years as a social worker, and my lifetime as a depressed man who had struggled with addiction. Even my wife made a comment to me once about my homepage that went something like this ” Yeah, its very informative- although maybe a little long….”
Huh? What is that supposed to mean? I will be writing a 10 page post on that issue later. But for now, I want to accomplish one thing only. I want to give new readers and old readers a chance to know what much of this blog is about, with simple points. I would prefer that all read my homepage, and from the comments and data I think many people do but for those that have not read it recently or at all ( shame on you) I have put together a very brief summary of some of the things this blog addresses. Remember, I write only what I know is fact, not speculation. If you read it, I have either lived it, worked it, or both.
Now before I begin I want to mention that the ” experts ” say we all have 3-6 seconds to catch the attention of the reader. Well today I am the expert, and I am changing that to umm, about ( hold on let me time that first paragraph) about 20 seconds. Yep the new standard is 20 seconds to catch your interest. I just made that rule…
Here are some key points I want to make sure are conveyed here-
1-Mental Health is real.
2- The DSM-V is a book of theories and contains ZERO facts.
3- Disorders or names of mental illness are necessary for one reason-to give the drug companies something to make a drug for .
4- Drug makers for the most part are complete and total failures and rarely deny that their bogus pills don’t work and even cause worse illnesses.
5-America is 1 of only 2 countries in the entire world that even allow drug companies to advertise on television. The other 175+ countries in our world understand that it is a fraud and cash driven racket most times serving no useful purpose.
5- Most other countries use natural healing agents that God put on this plant to CURE disease..not drugs to treat symptoms. ( My atheist buds, you can feel free to say the ” universe” put them in place)
6- Our new partner Mike Carey of Alternative Solutions 4 Health has been using these natural healing agents for 30+ years to CURE diseases like cancer, Hep C, liver disease, Lyme disease Fibromyalgia and many more in WEEKS.. Thais right weeks and disease is gone.
( Mike can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-968-5797 )

Right now for example we need a WordPress IT expert / Admin assistant in exchange for Platinum membership contact me email@example.com if interested.
7- Addiction is a DISEASE. The success rate in the USA for addiction in rehab is around 30%- and some say that is generous. The reason for this is there is NO accountability for providers in the USA. They make their own rules, and sadly it PAYS big money to KEEP us sick…yes that right.
8- One of our goals is to use our treatment model to team up with investors or payers and start implementing our own treatment model-tried and tested showing a success rate of more like 75-80%.
10-Doctors and therapists, and other mental health providers are needed. There are many great providers out there with good intentions, but the amount of the others is too significant to ignore.
11- I have been a Foster Parent to 45 teens, a parent to 4, a mental health therapist, addictions patient and counselor, depression patient and counselor. I have started programs for the public system for expelled teens who were felons. I have taught parent training for the State, Juvenile Justice. I am experienced in every type of abuse, of any sex and continue to be active in fighting to quit protecting catholic pedophile priest rings. I have a degree in communications, and a BSW ( Bachelors of Social Work)
12-I started this blog 4 years ago by word of mouth only and other then WordPress do no advertise at all-or even use the free social networks like Tumbler and all. Its important that people want to be here to get help, not that they get lured in here by some scheme. Today I know little about the true numbers on who sees this but I do know that we have followers in 65 countries..
13-The title Don’t Label My Kid! came from the last alternative school I opened. Almost all of the expelled kids I had seemed angry and out of it. I had them assessed by my own psychiatrist, who ended up either taking most off meds, changing the DSM diagnoses or both. Since I spent my whole time there teaching the teachers how to ” unlabel” their students- I named this site Don’t Label My Kid! after witnessing first hand the emotional damage labels do to us all.
14- Included in the goals for Don’t Label My Kid! are radio, physical treatment centers and much more!
15-On a personal note, I am from Florida, have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, the boys are grown, one is a professional Rodeo Cowboy ( Bull Rider) who currently is the Southern States champion at 19-
He is off to a career in the pro circuit while on a full scholarship to college .
My older son in a sharp shooter/weapons specialist is the Army Reserves, and full time student on the Presidents list in college as well as a full time worker.
My girls are are 5 & 10 and- well they are just my babies…
Before my social work career, I worked as a Dolphin Trainer while attending college!
