CAP has a tradition of regularly creating a time and place to come together – children, adults, families, staff, providers, Board and Committee members, and community friends – to celebrate and enjoy the relationships, connections and successes experienced by all along the way.
This year June 21st produced dry sunny weather and an energetic buzz as about 450 of us gathered at the Pittsford Recreation area to visit, catch-up with friends, play games, swim, and enjoy lunch. It was a spectacular event for the very young to the fairly mature. Frisbee Golf, games of skill (and a little luck), face painting, a miniature horse, live music, and giant bubbles made for an afternoon of fun and frolic! A barbeque by Keith’s of Brandon kept the hunger pains away and ice cream donated by Stewart’s, along with a cotton candy machine in constant motion, kept sweet tooth’s satisfied!
Many, many thanks to the committee responsible for putting together this well-attended event, to the gentlemen who parked cars, and to the folks who helped serve salads, burgers, dogs, drinks, and ice cream to so many people.
It was a fantastic day! We’re already looking
forward to next year!Our Mission is to enhance the well-being of our communities, individuals and families through responsive, innovative and collaborative human services.
Addicts are Mentally and Bodily Different
Mentally and Bodily Different!
Keith JohnsonFriday, September 14, 2007 I have read the many articles on reasons behind drug addiction and many of them are dead on. In my experience, there is no one right answer or set of answers. Can their be a mental disorder? Certainly. Can their be enviromental factors? No doubt! Can it start innocently? Yes. Can tragedy be the key? Absolutely. I have seen all of these factors in addicts.
So, why do a small percentage of the population go on to become drug addicts? Quite frankly, we are different! There is something that is with them from birth. When they begin to use, they cannot stop! Work with enough of these folks and you will see..It is not a matter of intellect, will power, a choice or any other label that non addicts try to put on them.
I have seen addicts who are intelligent, high earners, who use their will for very positive accomplishments but when it comes to addiction, they truly are different. Not bad, weak willed or somehow mentally defective, they are different. Like many diseases, the stigmas attached are usually bred out of lack of knowledge. We don't want to accept that they really are sick or diseased because we feel that may absolve them of their responsibility to find a solution. these are separate issues! We can acknowledge they are sick with a disease and provide them with a solution. The addict is responsible to get into the solution just like any patient with a disease!
Drop the stigmas, consider ...
