  • Jail Or Rehab: The Governments Choice - 345 words
    Jail Or Rehab: The Government's Choice In order to solve a problem, the cause must be understood. This is why drug treatment is the right and only approach to to the drug problem in the U.S. There are many factors that lead to an addiction, whether they are socioeconomic and environmental situations, an act of rebellion, or used as an escape, millions of people turn to drugs. The current system for addressing drug use is a combination of police enforcement, prosecutorial laws, treatment and education. Stricter laws and increased police enforcement have been attempted, and have failed. Focusing all of our efforts on education would be a worthwhile alternative, but not the optimum. It would ta ...

  • Above The Law - 1,177 words
    Above The Law Above the law The flashing lights of the police cars are blinding to you in your inebriated state. Through your drunken haze, the events leading up to now start to unfold. You were pulling ninety miles an hour in your SUV, when you collided with the bus full of blind orphans. The resulting crash sent the bus careening off the overpass, and onto a passing group of nuns and the governor, killing all of them instantly. The total body count is so far unknown. If you were an average person, you could expect the electric chair without question. Of course, you're far from average. You're a former Olympic champion who stars in the number one rated show in America, and whose movie has w ...

  • Acl Injuries In Athletes - 1,654 words
    Acl Injuries In Athletes ACL Injuries in Athletes The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) attaches the femur, which is the thighbone, and the tibia, which is the shin, together (northstar). A torn ACL is one of the most excruciating experiences in an athletes life. It is the first thing that comes to mind when they hurt their knee on the field; for many it is their greatest fear. A torn ACL can sometimes mean the end of an athletes career. It can mean losing the chance to get that scholarship for young athletes, and it can also mean the end of those million dollar paychecks for those who have gone professional. A torn ACL can result in numerous surgeries, months of vigorous exercise and rehabil ...

  • Acl Injuries: Who, How, And Why - 1,310 words
    Acl Injuries: Who, How, And Why? ACL Injuries: Who, How, and why? "Doc, I fell and twisted my knee. I heard a pop. It hurt briefly. When I stood up, the knee felt as if it was not underneath me, and the knee gave way. It swelled up by the next day and ever since feels as though it would pop out when I twist or even cross the street quickly." In almost all cases the above complaints occur due to an injury to the ACL (Anterior Crucial Ligament) of the knee. The ACL is a very important ligament in the knee that controls the pivoting motion of the knee. This joint guides the femur and tibia through a regular range of motion. It is the most common and serious of injury sustained to the knee (Duff ...

  • Amazing Grace - 587 words
    Amazing Grace Amazing Grace, by Jonathan Kozol, is about the author's interviews with, and thoughts about, some of the poorest people who live in the poorest sections of New York. The facts stated in Amazing Grace startled me with the prevalence and desperation of the poverty situation in areas like the South Bronx and Mott Haven. These are areas where there are hundreds of thousands of people living in broken, crowded, and rundown apartment buildings, "That," says Kozol, "most people would not even kennel their dogs in." (pg. 51) I have been to areas near my home that I thought were poverty stricken, but they pale in comparison to some of the situations that I read about in Amazing Grace. O ...

  • Chapel Talk - 1,652 words
    Chapel Talk Good morning. I don't think I can even begin to relate just how terrifying this is, so here's what I'm gonna do instead; I'll mumble, speak much too quickly, avoid all eye contact, and use overly-dramatic hand gestures. And since it's too early in the morning and school year to picture any of you naked, this'll have to do. In my lifetime, my family has owned and sheltered over one hundred and fifty dogs, cats, horses, goats, sheep, and various other species. My residence has acted as both a foster home and a rehab center for any animal we could make room for. Most stay with us permanently, but we haven't been lucky enough to help every animal we've come across. But the bliss of t ...

  • Death Penalty - 1,054 words
    Death Penalty You have heard from the affirmative side and you may disagree or agree with some of their points, but the reality is that their plan will not and cannot succeed in todays society. True, on paper the plan looks very good, but it will not work. Todays present system, with the death penalty is much better off then without it. The negative side, which my partner and I represent, feels that the death penalty should not be abolished and that todays system, which allows states to choose if they want to impose the death penalty, should continue to be used. It is true that innocent people have been executed, but that number is miniscule compared to the amount of true criminals that are ...

    ... ays Morphine 2 to 4 days Methamphetamine 2 to 4 days Valium 30 days (Bina 124) Today many companies are doing what the FBI has been doing for years, using hair follicle testing as a means of drug screening. Hair follicle testing is a drug testing method that is perhaps, less demeaning, less invasive, and less likely to be tampered with than the well-known urine test. Although, it is more reliable than urine testing it has its problems that need to be addressed. It is necessary for one to understand how hair grows to be able to understand the testing procedure. Hair grows within a small cavity known as the hair follicle. Hair growth occurs when cells divide in the matrix near the bottom o ...

  • Dual Relationships And Self Disclosure - 1,453 words
    Dual Relationships And Self Disclosure Dual Relationships and Self-Disclosure Chemical Dependency counselors have quite a few ethical dilemmas to deal with. Therapists that are in recovery may confront some even more complex dilemmas, opposed to those who are not. There is a high percentage of addiction counselors that are in recovery. In fact, 55% of 36,000 members of the National Association of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counselors (NAADAC) are recovering alcoholics and 21% are recovering from some other chemical dependency. This brings up two sides to counselors in recovery. "There is something about the personal experience that assists counselors to being especially attentive to the need ...

    Free Willy! Why We Should Free Captured Whales Many people have heard about Keiko, the killer whale, who starred in the movie Free Willy. After seeing the movie, audiences discovered that the friendly whale in the movie was in a tank too small and in bad health because of that and other complications that come with being taken from its natural habitat to a place where it can't meet it's own needs. Soon a foundation was set u[ and money started pouring in from children and their schools to come up with a plan to one day free Keiko.

  • Hedonism And The Great Gatsby - 621 words
    Hedonism And The Great Gatsby Hedonism and The Great Gatsby Hedonism means to live only for pleasure. It means not thinking about the consequences of your actions as long as make you happy. It's a total abandon of all responsibilities. This type of lifestyle often has negative results. I mean, look at the hippies, and how their hedonistic society turned out. They are all either in rehab centers or have kids running around with names like "Moonbeam" and "Starchild". But enough hippie bashing - let's look at how the Hedonistic way of life is integrated into The Great Gatsby. Let's take the parties for example. Gatsby has a party just about every week, no matter what. He has tons of people come ...

  • Ideologies - 528 words
    Ideologies Ideologies An ideology is a set of ideas connected together that explain how government and society should be organized and what set of values the society should embrace. The concept of an ideology is a very slippery topic in that people range in the level or degree of their feelings. Ideologies are simplistic and not concerned about logic and consistency. This means that if they are either conservatives or liberal their ideas may vary slightly. Conservatives may have slight differences in the way they think about society. Their ideas are not clear cut or precise. Ideologies contain a view of human nature. In other words, they tell what people are like. There are not clear-cut ans ...

  • In Favor Of Capital Punishment - 887 words
    In Favor of Capital Punishment I believe that the death penalty is the best and fairest punishment for people who have taken other peoples lives. Here are some interesting facts about the death penalty. Did you know that 70% of all Americans support the death penalty? Murder rates have also been down since the death penalty was reinforced. And rehab techniques are so underdeveloped that no one is ever certain that a murderer can be rehabilitated (supporting capital). First of all, if someone has taken someone elses life, in most cases their life should be taken also. If a person is so imcompassionate for human beings and just doesnt care what happens to anyone; if they are sick enough to tak ...

  • Life - 1,325 words
    Life The Life I started using mild sedatives in my late junior high years. This soon led to the use of hallucinogens. I soon realized I knew all and I did not need school any longer. This led to a dilemma. In the state of Florida you must attend school until the age of sixteen, where I was only fifteen. So the next step was either attend school or get shipped off. Obviously, in my state of mind, I wasnt thinking all to clearly and decided to be shipped off. By shipped off, I mean sent away to a rehabilitation institution. My parents knew of this place from my best friend Sennecca, who attended this rehabilitation the year before. I soon found myself on a plane heading for the snowy caps of U ...
