Why Medication Free?

We know that anti-depressants have very limited success and carry the highest risk warnings the government can issue. Stimulant drugs like Concerta and Ritalin have increased by ~400% and there are currently 6 million kids and teens on these drugs, yet stimulants are near the top for potentially addictive effects. Stimulants can cause agitation, irritability, anger, hostility, disinhibiting, and mania; we give it to be able to concentrate and sit still in school.

At a time when more people are addicted to medications than illegal drugs, we feel that it is ill advice to give our young people the message that difficulties are fixed with drugs and medications. We advocate conscious change, in the context of support and hard work. Our approach instills a message that says: “I can be anything I want to be if I work hard toward it, and have the people to support me in my goals.”
