SENDA lanza impactante campaña sobre consencuencias del consumo de drogas en la familia

El objetivo es que personas con consumo problemático busquen ayuda para rehabilitarse.

SENDA ofrece 16.000 cupos gratuitos, distribuidos en las 15 regiones del país, para beneficiarios del sistema público de salud.

Con el fin de generar conciencia sobre el impacto que produce el consumo de drogas en el espacio privado, especialmente en el entorno familiar, el ministro del Interior y Seguridad Pública, Rodrigo Hinzpeter, y la directora de SENDA, Francisca Florenzano, lanzaron la campaña “La droga no solo afecta al que la consume…también afecta a su familia”.

La campaña consta de dos spots de televisión que serán transmitidos en canales abiertos de cobertura nacional, junto a dos frases radiales y gráfica que será exhibida en las 15 regiones del país.

En cuanto a los comerciales de TV, el primero de ellos relata la historia de una mujer joven, de aproximadamente 30 años, consumidora de pasta base, cuya adicción la lleva a perder a su hija de pocos meses de edad; mientras que el segundo spot muestra a un hombre que bajo los efectos de la cocaína, es responsable de un accidente de tránsito que le cuesta la vida a toda su familia.

Florenzano explicó que “cuando hay uso de drogas, son los seres queridos quienes más sufren, pues esto produce un deterioro progresivo de las relaciones familiares, afectivas, sociales, económicas e incluso laborales. No existe familia que no se vea afectada cuando uno de sus integrantes presenta consumo problemático de drogas”.

La directora destacó que frente a una situación de este tipo “el tratamiento es un opción real para ayudar a las personas y familias que sufren esta realidad”. Al respecto, SENDA ofrece una red de tratamiento gratuita, presente en todo el país, a través de centros de tratamiento públicos y privados para hombres y mujeres mayores de 18 años, beneficiarios del sistema público de salud.

A nivel nacional, se cuenta con 16.000 cupos distribuidos en los distintos planes disponibles en las 15 regiones del país.

Durante 2012, se han abierto 17 nuevos centros para población adulta y 9 para adolescentes infracciones de ley.

Fonodrogas

Otra herramienta que SENDA pone a disposición de quienes lo requieran, es el Fonodrogas, servicio gratuito anónimo y confidencial, que funciona las 24 horas, los 7 días de la semana, y en el cual las personas que necesiten ayuda u orientación son atendidas por personal capacitado.

Los números del Fonodrogas son 188 800 100 800 y 800 22 18 18, desde celulares.

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse: Angel Song

The day Amy Winehouse passed away, I wrote a blog post in which I simply tried to let Amy tell her story, in her own words, through the many recorded interviews she left behind, primarily on YouTube.


I found Amy enthusiastic, articulate, and an absolute pleasure to watch and listen to as she talked about her music, her life, her love(s), and London.

Evidently, I was one of the few people who allowed Amy to tell her own story, in her own words.

Over the past year, that blog post has had over 300 thousand site visits. It became abundantly clear to me, gradually, that Amy was allowing me a great privilege: to study her words as closely as she had studied her musical influences, and then, to make the realization that there are people who need help: for their addictions, but can’t get it, due to financial reasons.

Accordingly, all of the proceeds for this book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, to be used to help young people in the UK get high quality rehabilitation treatment, which ultimately makes them productive members of society, contributors, rather than a financial drain on society.

We all know that addiction sends people to emergency rooms, causes crime, destroys families, and results in huge economic losses in terms of productivity.

Yet the most painful fact of all is that this is easily preventable.

We have the knowledge and the technology to do better.

Better alcohol and drug abuse education is needed for children at increasingly younger ages.

Affordable rehab and long term, after-care programs are needed, urgently.

Again, for me, it is a privilege and an honor to be able to contribute to the important work of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, in this small way.

Thank you kindly, Amy Winehouse, my guardian angel.

Rest In Peace, Sweet Angel…

Soy Un Maestro

Soy Un Maestro: I Am A Teacher [Paperback]

I am a teacher, and I teach in Chile. This year a new Teacher Career Law, defining the teaching profession in terms of increased prestige, attracting more applicants from higher performing students, an obligatory enabling exam, higher salaries, fewer hours teaching in the classroom, and higher responsibilities wil be passed, hopefully. This book totally supports the idea that a good law is needed, and now is the time to pass one, even if that law is not yet perfect. We Teachers have such a long way to go, and this is clearly a tremendous step in the right direction. To celebrate, all of the funds received for the sale of this book will go to support the EdCamp Santiago free conference for teachers in Chile. Thank you, in advance, for buying this book. May God Bless You…

Soy el más afortunado de todos quienes trabajan. A un médico se le permite traer una vida en un momento mágico. A mí se me permite que esa vida renazca día a a día con nuevas preguntas, ideas y amistades. Un arquitecto sabe que si construye con cuidado, su estructura puede permanecer por siglos. Un maestro sabe que si construye con amor y verdad, lo que construya durará para siempre.
