The RAEL Orange Friday Wave is about creating awareness around addiction and to remove the stigma. #RAELOrangeFriday
Addiction does not merely affect the addict, it creates a hell for those around them. It does not merely destroy the addict's
family and friends, it has devastatingly far-reaching effects across the board. Most alarming of all, it can happen to anyone,
it's non-discriminatory, it crosses all divides. But it doesn't have to be this way. Recovering addicts CAN turn their lives around,
they CAN be useful and upstanding members of society.
As the founder of R.A.E.L and RAEL Orange Friday, it has been proven to me through years of experience that addiction
loves to hide in darkness, that people's shame / fear will prevent them from seeking help, but, through support & open,
non-judgemental, lines of communication, addicts and their families can recover from this illness, whether it's alcohol, drugs,
or gambling. It is in the whole world's best interests to address this illness with the attention it deserves, it must be taken out
of the shadows and dark corners and brought to light. With awareness and support we can make a difference in so many lives.
We continue to keep it in the open every friday with #RAELORANGEFRIDAY
Where we ask people to wear Orange and share pics etc. So we together, can fight this scourge killing our nation.
CREATING ADDICTION AWARENESS & REMOVING THE STIGMA.
