F.I.S.T. ~ Families in Support of Treatment Forum June 7, 2013

I hope this message finds you well. F.I.S.T (Families in Support of Treatment) needs your support. We have put together an event which will take place on Friday June 7th in Wantagh, Long Island. 

This event will provide the audience with education, awareness, empowerment, resources, advocacy, a voice and most of all HOPE!  

We will have over fifty agencies, organizations, therapists, interventionists etc. as a resource for those attending the event. There will be representation from Inpatient Residential, Rehab and Detox programs. In addition there will be Outpatient programs , Alcoholic Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Families Anonymous, Al-anon, Nar-anon , private therapists, interventionists etc. If you would like a table at this event please contact Anthony Rizzuto as soon as possible at 516-316-6387.  The deadline to reserve a table is May 31st. 

Be an agent of change, pass this on to others. I don't know of many families that have not been affected by this epidemic. Day in and day out I get a call from a frantic mother or family member saying that they need help. The devastation that addiction causes in families and in our communities is no longer tolerable. From shootings in pharmacies to driving under the influence, we are all impacted. Family members often say It is so hard to get their loved one to agree to get help and when they finally do insurance companies are denying them authorization claiming either that they don't meet medical necessity or that they haven't failed in outpatient. Mind you this is a benefit that the individual has been paying into for years. This cannot continue!! Legislation has been introduced and we need to gather up support throughout the State. This will be the first of several presentations. We have already started discussions on the next one in New York City. After that we will be in Albany , Buffalo and Westchester. The Hispanic community has also reached out for me to put one together in Spanish. 
The ideals of F.I.S.T is unity and strength. Each finger has limited strength on its own, but when the fingers unite they form a Fist which symbolizes strength and unity. It also symbolizes the willingness to FIGHT for what we believe.
So far the response has been incredible. We are hoping to fill each and every seat in the church which holds 800. Email this to friends, family, politicians, media outlets and any connections that you have to bring attention to this cause.
P.S. If you know of anyone that has lost a family member as a result of addiction please invite them. There will be a part of the program where a mother who lost her son will speak and others with the same circumstances will be invited up as well for support. Also if you know of folks that have been denied access to treatment by their insurance company please invite them as well, they will have an opportunity to turn their frustration into action.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Anthony Rizzuto @ 516-316-6387.  
It is time for change!!! 
Thank you for your support!

How do YOU choose to start your day?


Repeat after me...
"I am loving, I am lovable, I am loved. I AM LOVE!" 
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! 
Treat yourself to something special because you are SPECIAL! ~ EEK♥ ♥ ♥

Are you the type of person who starts off each day by listening to the news?  I find the news to be very depressing and discouraging to say the least.  It surely takes the zippity-do-da right out of my step!  I choose to be uplifted and start off each day on a positive note.

I received this inspirational video from a dear friend of mine today.  This person knows that I love to start off each day with a repertoire of uplifting affirmations/intentions, in fact just about anything inspirational and this video surely fits the bill.  If each and every one of us knew that we mattered and how special we truly are, how different this world would be.

I plan on putting this on my desktop so that I can watch it daily! The words, music and visuals were put together beautifully. I am happy to share it with you all...enjoy!

A night of fun, food, entertainment, Chinese Auction and more for a worthy cause!
7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Momentum Education 
131 West Main Street
(entrance on Smith St.)
Bayshore, NY 11706

I am writing on behalf of Momentum Education, a prominent organization acclaimed for providing life-changing workshops for adults since 2003.  
The curriculum at Momentum Education is proven effective and grounded in experiential learning techniques that ensure self-discovery and provide tools to success that are immediately applicable and long lasting.

There is also a component for today's youth:  
Momentum Teens for Leadership (MTFL),, a program designed to
empower teenagers to be responsible, cooperative and contributing leaders.

MTFL,  founded by Robin Lynn in 2009, provides workshops and ongoing programs designed for 13-17 olds to enhance communication and empower new discoveries and conversations of choice, responsibility, trust, cooperation, contribution, integrity, and team. 

Programs led by expert trainers provide practical tools and hands-on experiential learning to support teens in being responsible leaders in their families, schools, communities, and the world.   Participants leave MTFL with practical skills  that they can begin implementing in their lives immediately and with enjoyable memories to last a lifetime. 

We are organizing an event to raise funds for the next teens leadership workshop on Long Island in February 2013.  This will be the 3rd Teen Basic Workshop held on Long Island!
Your donation will bring us closer to our goal of $10,000.00.  Many businesses and community leaders are already on board as well as hundreds of individuals.  Our community is eager and excited to see this project succeed.  You can be a part of that excitement by supporting our youth with a donation. We would be happy to acknowledge your donation on our community board and at our numerous events.


On Saturday, January 5, 2012 we will host a Teens Leadership Scholarship Fund at the Momentum Education office located at 131 West Main Street, Bayshore, NY 11706.

    Excerpt from a mother's thank you letter to Momentum Teens: 

"...My son [Jacques] express to me before momentum, he felt like a self-centered selfish person and now after momentum he feel like a brand-new person. In the beginning the experience of momentum was moving, my son really didn't want to take part in attending the program. He felt that there was nothing to change about his self, He felt perfectly fine the way he was, but he found out he was wrong after attending momentum teens. He is a powerful, open, and committed leader; being disconnected cause him to be close with his thoughts and feeling, being lazy caused him not to accomplish his goals and being selfish caused him to be powerless. ...My experience now with Jacques is showing me how loving he is by hugging me and listen from a good place of understanding. Jaquin is expressing his feeling about how he feel inside without judge or withholding."
