Supporters claim such sites offer a humane response to the agony of those trapped in substance abuse. A sheltered location that provides clean needles and Narcan (a nasal spray to counteract opioid overdoses) will save lives and lead to sobriety, proponents argue. However, as those in recovery often say, truth is the first casualty of addiction.... Read more →

A good example of this reasoning is to feed your dog a cup or so of good quality, dry dog food in the morning and a half-cup with some cooked chicken or canned dog food at supper time, including dog biscuits as treats during the day. When you choose this method of feeding you can also regulate the approximate time Fido will need to be walked or taken outside. Another method of feeding is... Read more →
