Kudos to “Yes! Magazine!” (Powerful Ideas Practical Actions).
“Yes! Magazine” published a delightful article about Portugal titled Portugal Cut Addiction Rates in Half by Connecting Drug Users With Communities Instead of Jailing Them.
A Sub Heading declared “Fifteen years ago, the Portuguese had one of the worst drug problems in Europe. So they decriminalized drugs, took money out of prisons, put it into holistic rehabilitation, and found that human connection is the antidote to addiction.”
In my Angel Raphael Speaks Series, Volumes 4, 5 and 6 talk about addiction and alcoholism in the prison scenario but I also wrote a series called Angels Are Always Around Addicts and Alcoholics. Volume 1 is subtitled Help Is Near Now – Invite it In! Volume 2 is Subtitled Volume 2 – Tools To Help Re-Light Your Life.
Say “Yes” to your community by bringing awareness to what the Portuguese have done to help save the lives of your fellow citizens.
Don’t you think that God and the Angels favor the citizens of your country as much as the Portuguese.

I have no connection to the magazine but while I was reading that page, I signed up for their free page. Their work is impressive.
