Imagine the suffering that could be prevented

"Imagine if we treated young kids’ depression before they treated it themselves with marijuana. Imagine if we helped kids with learning disabilities before they checked out and found solace in drinking. Imagine if we could identify a child experiencing his parents’ difficult divorce, bullying, abuse, or other trauma in his life and get him effective counseling before drugs appear as a solution, and before use leads to abuse and abuse leads to addiction. Imagine the lives that could be saved. Imagine the suffering that could be prevented". ~David Sheff, Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy
