Provide teachers and students with support as they invent, explore and experiment in the classroom.

PROBLEM STATEMENT Drop out rates with African American and Latino Male Youth continue to increase in high schools and community colleges.

According to President Obama the nations economy in our country is loosing billions of dollars behind the dropout rate increases. March 2010 "This is a problem we can’t afford to accept or ignore,” President Obama said. “The stakes are too high – for our children, for our economy, for our country. It’s time for all of us to come together – parents and students, principals and teachers, business leaders and elected officials – to end America’s dropout crisis.

CLAUDIO SANCHEZ, BYLINE: Documented on December 17,2015, after covering President Obama's State of the Union speech. "But we have very high dropout rates, especially in community colleges where it's up to 60 percent at the very time that the president is proposing two years tuition-free community college."

PROJECT GOAL Provide the tools to effectively help each student market themselves with new attitudes and behavior toward education and career options.

PROJECT STRATEGIES Strategically mentor teachers and students, promote exciting teaching methods to accommodate a range of learning styles, take advantage of today’s abundance of technological resources, and meet the individual specific educational needs of each African American and Latino male youth.

Sustain a comprehensive effort from Teachers and parents to keep students in school. Provide genuine support, motivation and entertainment that are educational.

Questions to address. What corrective action a teacher or parent should takes if a student refuses to discuss schoolwork and suddenly doesn't want to tell anyone about what he or she are learning in school, or how their school day went?

If African-American and Latino male's youth students are provided with opportunity to document their life stories by contemplating dropping out of school through dramas, workshops, conferences and individual training will the student participate and to what degree?

Prescription Drug Addiction

Posted by houseofgodspower on April 26, 2012 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Florida is leading the state in prescription drug addiction and the epidemic behind the pain management clinics, or “pill mills.” Unprecedented increases in levels of abuse pose a serious threat to the health and safety of Florida citizens. The Florida Medical Examiners report that five people die in Florida daily as a direct result of prescription drug overdoses.



The State of Florida is a primary area for international drug trafficking and money laundering organizations, as well as a principal thoroughfare for Cocaine and Heroin transiting to the northeastern United States and Canada. Florida’s over 8,000 miles of coastline provides virtually unlimited access and opportunities for drug trafficking organizations to use maritime conveyances to smuggle drugs.


Prescription drugs: Current investigations indicate that diversion of hydrocodone (e.g. Vicodin®) and Oxycodone (OxyContin) products are a problem. Benzodiapezines (such as Xanax) and methadone are also identified as being among the most commonly abused and diverted abused pain medication in Florida. Primary methods of diversion include the Internet, illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers, “doctor shopping,” forged prescriptions and employee theft. Florida has emerged as a center for Internet holding companies which organize (and sometimes control) websites, physicians, pharmacies, and even pharmaceutical wholesalers. This is ample reason for Florida drug rehab, and Florida drug detox attention state wide immediately

LEADING BEYOND EXPECTATION OUTREACH WORKSHOPS ON "Florida Marchman Act" One of the most difficult tasks for families affected by substance abuse is convincing the addict that drug rehab is needed. Interventions are one option that can lead the addict to voluntarily seek help, but sometimes the addict simply won’t budge. In such instances, it may be time to consider forcing the addict into substance abuse rehab. More than a dozen states have laws dealing with involuntary commitment for addiction treatment. Florida’s Marchman Act is among the most progressive of these laws

One of the most difficult tasks for families affected by substance abuse is convincing the addict that drug rehab is needed. Interventions are one option that can lead the addict to voluntarily seek help, but sometimes the addict simply won’t budge. In such instances, it may be time to consider forcing the addict into substance abuse rehab. More than a dozen states have laws dealing with involuntary commitment for addiction treatment.

We recommend L.B.E. Outreach Services for our Marchman Act clients.

Q. What is the Marchman Act? A. It’s a civil, confidential involuntary commitment statute in the state of Florida. To put it in layman’s terms, it’s a law devised to assist families through the courts to get loved ones into court-ordered-and-monitored intervention assessment stabilization or detox, and long-term treatment when they won’t do it themselves.

Q. Who can invoke the Florida Marchman Act to force someone into treatment? A. A spouse, blood relative or any three people who have direct knowledge of a person’s substance abuse. Many people who don’t have any family at all, so that’s why the law allows for three people who have independent knowledge.

Q. What kind of proof must I provide that this person needs treatment now?A. You have to demonstrate that the person has lost the power of self-control with respect to substance abuse, and that they’re likely to inflict harm upon themselves or other people unless they get help. Also, you must demonstrate he or she doesn’t have the capacity to appreciate the need for care or make any kind of rational decision regarding that care. And finally, they’re unwilling to do this voluntarily.

Once you file, many times the addict suddenly says, “Okay, I’ll do it.”

Q. Once I file the necessary paperwork, how does the process work?A. A hearing is set before the court after a Petition for Involuntary Assessment and Stabilization is filed. That petition is basically says, “Judge, I want you to have this person assessed and stabilized.” Following this hearing, the individual is held for up to five days for medical stabilization and assessment. A recommendation is also made to the court.

Following that process, a Petition for Treatment must be filed with the court and a second hearing is held for the court to review the assessment and recommendation. Based upon that recommendation, the judge can then order a 60-day treatment period with a possible 90-day extension, if necessary. If the addict exits treatment in violation of the judge’s order, you return to court and have the addict answer to the court as to why he or she did not comply with treatment and returned immediately for involuntarily care. If the addict refuses, he or she is held in civil contempt of court for not following the treatment order, and is ordered to either return to treatment or be incarcerated. This why the Marchman Act works — it carries real consequences.

One advantage of hiring a law firm is having the ability to skip this first step and expedite the entire process, especially the crucial phase of having the person medically stabilized. A lawyer will file a sworn petition that lays out the facts and demonstrates the need for immediate substance abuse assessment, detox and intervention. There can then be a court order in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

Q. Must the addict be a Florida resident to be treated under the Marchman Act? A. No. People who are using drugs are often transient, so it’s difficult for families to lock them down with residency. With the Marchman Act, if they step foot in an area, we can file in that area. We actually have clients from all across the nation calling us saying, “We’re going to get somebody down to Florida so we can hold them.”

Q. Is an attorney needed to seek treatment under the Florida Marchman Act?A. An attorney isn’t required under the Marchman Act, but an experienced attorney does offer a greater chance of success. 9-of-10 families who try to take advantage of the Marchman Act on their own often run into difficulty because they simply don’t know the rules of civil procedure. It’s like doing your own criminal case or divorce. Many Marchman Act filings are dismissed for technical reasons, even though the addict fits all the necessary criteria to qualify.

It’s also important to note that in order to protect the addict’s due-process rights, every addict who appears in court under the Marchman Act has an attorney assigned to them. Families walk in there thinking they’re trying to get someone help, and suddenly their loved one has an attorney trying to get the case dismissed.

We like to tell the families, “Look, you tell us to start this thing, and then it’s time for you to step back. You’ve dealt with enough, and it’s time for us to shoulder the burden here. We’re going to get the person into treatment, and if they leave, we’re going to get them back.”

At LBE we have a referral list of attorneys who have the credentials to help families benefit from the years of experience they have in working on Marchman Act cases.

Q. Will treatment under the Florida Marchman Act cost more?

A. L.B.E. is a profit incorporation so there is a cost involved for hiring us, with the exact cost varying based upon the complexity of the case. The good news is that we work with families through payment plans, because we know that oftentimes treatment can get expensive.

We charge a flat fee, so families know upfront the cost of our services, and we offer a free and thorough initial consultation. For families without the ability to pay for treatment, we can explore other options on a case by case basis.

Why do ambitious young people drop out of college?

Posted by houseofgodspower on April 12, 2012 at 9:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It seems that the glamor of parties,casual dating, and living away from mom and dad is enough of an incentive to keep students in school. So, why do ambitious young people drop out of college?



With almost every degree comes at least a decade offinancial misery. Every kid is entitled to a quality college education, butsometimes finding the money to get that education isn’t easy. The average costof a private, non-profit college is about $35,000 a year. For many, the choice is either to sign their life away tostudent loans, or pack their bags and head home for cheaper pastures.


It’s tough finding out there’s more to college than keggersand sex. For many kids, high school was easy to blow off. Kids who could coastthrough high school sometimes hit college and are unprepared for the effortthey need to put in to succeed.

There is a big difference in the pre-algrebra they tooktheir freshman year of high school, and the calculus they are required to takein college. Once the academic withdrawals start rolling in, they start lookingfor a life that’s just a little less challenging.


Sometimes college is about making tough choices. Sadly, theworld doesn’t stop just because college starts. There are times when thepersonal life of a student will interfere with their ability to finish asemester. Whether it is a loved one falling ill, or a parent’s loss of a jobthat forces a kid into the work force, there are times when college has to beput on hold. The only hope is that life won't get in the way of collegeforever.


College can be a fun time for a kid. For some, it’s aboutexperimentation and self discovery. For others, sadly it’s about putting theirliver through the ringer. It’s hard to make the Dean’s List when they can’t wakeup for their noon class. Kids who party too hard don’t study enough, and thatkind of routine catches up with them quickly. A semester or two of living theAnimal House fantasy will get them kicked out of school.


It’s too bad college can’t figure out the rest of your lifefor you. Imagine going to your job everyday without direction, knowledge, oreven a sense of what’s next. That’s how many kids feel when they go to campusthe first time.

Sitting in a classroom gets old when they feel no reason tobe there. Some take the step to scale back their education and enroll incommunity college courses. Others give up the world of academia until theyfigure out what they want.


Who needs college when there are so many glamorous jobs outthere? Some students see college as a means to make themselves more attractiveto potential employers. Others see college as getting in the way of potentialemployment. Those students tend to leave college to join the work force. Some studentssay “yes” to a dream job. Others quit school and take a job that is more orless limiting to their financial future. There’s hope that it will lead tobigger and better things, but those instances are few and far between.


There are a number of students who go to school and workfull time. These students are usually older, and in a position where leavingtheir job isn’t an option. So, when the balance of job and school gets to betoo difficult, something has to give. At that point they have to turn in theirtextbooks and get back to work.


Heartache might seem like a weak excuse to cut youreducation short, but it’s real, and it hurts. Relationships are difficult tomaintain in college, and breakups can be one big soap opera. The constantpainful memories, and the dividing of mutual friends might be too much for aperson to take. That’s when students get packing.


College can often bring forlorn looks out of every kid.College is about the unknown. For many kids this is an exciting time. Forothers it’s just too much. There are a number of students who relish thecomforts of home. Everything from the taste of mom’s homemade chili, to thepizza place on the corner, symbolizes security to the homesick college kid.When those old familiar things start calling, it’s time for these students toget home.


College isn’t for everyone. Whether it is the cost, the lackof direction, or missing friends who stayed local, college can be a challengethat some aren’t ready for. College often doesn’t get easier with age, andthere will always be some reason to withdraw early. But for those willing tomove past these complicating factors, the rewards are worth it
