“The restaurants of Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, such as Mr. Lester’s, are some of the finest in Louisiana. With the addition of TSUNAMI, we will now be offering some our state’s premier Sushi and Asian cuisine. We are proud they have chosen Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel for their third location and know, without a doubt, that their brand will be an outstanding fit with ours.

Oscar Statue Snorting Cocaine Catches All Eyes in Hollywood, Ca

USA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

A cocaine snorting Oscar statue in Hollywood is the newest scandal deviating from the typical nip slip or scathing scuffle. A new take on the glamour of the movie industry is dawning the streets of Hollywood as Paper Jesus’ rendition of the venerable Oscar trophy sparks questions about drug addiction and substance abuse in Hollywood. The Oscar statue is depicted snorting cocaine, and was constructed to take a political stance on the travails of drug addiction in Hollywood. Paper Jesus, a self named artist in Hollywood, is illuminating the all-too-real world of drug addiction and drug addicts secreted in the ardor of Hollywood. Beyond this, the statue serves as a grim reminder to those walking the streets of Hollywood to get drug and alcohol addiction treatment help for their substance use disorders.

Paper Jesus’ statue begs the question, “Why are we romanticising drug use?” The sparkle of Hollywood wears off behind the scenes of addiction. Drug addicts frequently lose their careers, relations with family, friends, spouses, and children. A victim of a substance use disorder is haunted with the continual thought of finding the biological necessity of his drug of choice. We now know that addiction is a disease as quantifiable as coronary heart failure, espoused with diagnosable symptoms, signs, and medical pitfalls stemming from neglected drug and alcohol addiction treatment. The drug and alcohol inpatient treatment center, Harbor Village Detox recently published a blog post on “3 Ways to Help a Loved One Get Help for Substance Abuse” to guide readers through the confusion of getting help for addiction.

As quoted by CBS Los Angeles, on Feb. 19th, Paper Jesus said, “We often hear about [drug addiction] when a high-profile celebrity perhaps goes into rehab, people like directors, producers, hair and makeup people, electricians, sound guys and so on, these people don’t get the care, the treatment that the high profile people can access. . . If one person who has a heroin addiction or cocaine addiction sees a piece of my art and gets help, well that’s it, my works done.”

A Harbor Village Detox medical associate comments, “Patients think we have a magic wand that can ultimately resolve drug addiction quickly. But that’s not the case. Addiction is a long and arduous process, that demands focused attention to adequately address and rectify long term. You see movie stars and celebrities come out of addiction with glimmering smiles and photoshopped faces. But what people don’t see is the toll it takes on them physically, emotionally, mentally, and biologically. Until celebrities candidly open up about the behind-the-scenes of addiction, the public is going to continue to glorify drug use- and that’s dangerous.”

Harbor Village Detox is a national inpatient medical detox center serving the victims of drug and alcohol addiction; the drug and alcohol treatment facility specializes in connecting recovering heroin addicts and alcoholics to accredited heroin rehab and alcohol rehab facilities. The professional and caring staff of Harbor Village Detox were once suffers of substance use disorders, who have since transformed their lives. Their dedication manifests Harbor Village’s treatment philosophy: every person from any socioeconomic status should have access to the best rehabilitation treatment.

Fifty Shades of Grey, Are Abusive Relationships Becoming Mainstream? NoBullying Article Released Today

London, UK (PRWEB) February 24, 2015

Fifty Shades of Grey is a bestselling book trilogy that has been making waves since its release several years ago. But, with the release of the first film based on Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentine’s Day 2015, NoBullying explores the trend of turning abusive relationships into a mainstream wave, in an article released today.

First of all, NoBullying’s Online Editor notes the fact that whether it is mainstream or not, Fifty Shades of Grey, whether in words or visuals, is a piece of art that glorifies several porn related aspects such as BDSM and voyeurism. While it is not rated for younger audience, the truth remains that with today’s technology advancements, teens are still most likely able to watch this film or read the books. Also, even if parents are extra careful, the trailers are extremely suggestive and are airing on television where children can easily watch them, NoBullying warns.

Also, not wanting to spoil the film or the books for those who haven’t been exposed to them yet, the books have elements of abusive relationships such as stalking, put downs, physical abuse (spanking counts even if playful) as well as coercion and controlling behavior, NoBullying’s editor notes.

NoBullying wishes to highlight one of the signs of stalking that are pretty much text book which is when the stalker does what he does simply because they can. They get off on using violence and abuse and making other people feel scared. This stalker will obsess and plan out his actions in intricate detail. This is sometimes hard to see if the stalker is actually close to the person they are stalking and are simply trying to control them. All are elements found in the abusive relationship between the books’ main characters.

NoBullying’s Editor, Radwa Rashad, notes that while these alternative life styles such as BDSM are a free choice for whomever wishes to adopt them and they shouldn’t carry this social stigma, glamorizing abuse under the pretext of a less common lifestyle shouldn’t be accepted.

Ciaran Connolly, Co Founder of NoBullying says “We at NoBullying realize that living in an abusive relationship is one of the hardest thing a person can go through, many people-including children, are abused daily. Putting an aura of glamor and mystery to domestic violence and abusive relationships under a pretext of love doesn’t help end domestic abuse.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of neglecting one’s safety online and offline. According to Connolly, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

He also adds that parents and children should always be entitled to more communication with school administrators and guidance councilors in order to put a stop to bullying and hazing practices happening inside school on daily basis. Other children in school should also be made aware about the bystander concept and how they should intervene and step up when a bullying incident takes place.

NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide, including helpline resources, as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and famous Bullying Quotes.

The website regularly updates its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics as it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is. It also regularly runs cyber bullying surveys and questionnaires to get recent updated statistics on everything related to cyberbullying.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always find advice and help on the NoBullying website wherever they are or whatever they are going through.
