Engaging, Eye-Opening Presentations
Bubba, founder of Here I Am Addiction Services, is available to speak at public events, jails, treatment centers, and schools.
His keynotes include:
Poverty is no excuse, racism is no excuse, unemployment is no excuse. Anger is no excuse, an abusive childhood is no excuse, ignorance is no excuse. THERE IS NO EXCUSE. Drugs are still bad, crime is still wrong, addiction can be treated, problems can be solved. We can change…OR…We can keep losing.
If nothing changes..nothing changes.
Gratitude, forgiveness, and acceptance are not feelings, they are commitments to ourselves that they are solutions to problems we face. If we are persistent with our choice of gratitude, forgiveness, or acceptance, eventually our hearts will align themselves with our heads, and once that happens we find everything we were looking for in a drink or a drug.
