Informational Links

In an effort to spread the word on some matters that are important to me, I will post a few informational links here. Please do not take offense to anything that I do (or do not) add here.

Feel free to reach out if you want to share any other info about little-known or misunderstood things (non-political please). You can use the comment field at the bottom of this page to share any ideas.

This life is yours. Use all available resources. I love you.

Addiction and Related Issues: BOCA Recovery Center (

(800) 516-4357

Again, I have not used this service, but they do seem to cover many issues, including addiction, domestic violence, and how they relate to one another. They say they have medical detox and flexible term rehab, accept insurance, and are strictly confidential. I saw they include information for LGBTQ+, including substance abuse and cultural competency. Some other things they handle are: inpatient and outpatient treatment, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), family therapy, and eating disorders.

If you need a phone to use and don’t want to go to the police, try a library or business-class hotel.

Blind Assistance:

Be My Eyes is a free mobile app with one main goal: to make the world more accessible for blind and low-vision people. The app connects blind and low-vision individuals with sighted volunteers and companies from all over the world through a live video call.

I have not personally used this service, but it sounds awesome – and like something I might enjoy volunteering for. In addition to their primary function translating the visual world for folks, they also have a section on their website for how they can help your business.

Domestic Abuse: National Domestic Violence Hotline (

I don’t have experience with the National Domestic Violence Hotline, but it seems good. You can call, chat, or email, or just learn more about dealing with abusive parents, spouses, etc., by clicking through the menu. They even discuss pet safety. If you would rather call than leave an internet trail, find a safe phone and call them at: 1-800-799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233), TTY 1-800-787-3224 or text “Start” to 88788.
