A Celebration of Life and Hope for HIV/AIDS

by James Heller 20. November 2009 11:03

It doesn’t seem very long ago that a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS came with a sense of hopelessness.  Now the diagnosis can come with a motivation to live healthier and extend life.  And when being HIV positive is paired with drug addiction or alcoholism, hope and life must be celebrated.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles understands this and provides comprehensive HIV services as part of our commitment to integrated behavioral healthcare in alcohol and drug treatment.  It is important for HIV positive patients to receive a continuum of care starting as soon as they enter drug or alcohol detox.  It is also important to celebrate life, as we have for several years now, by holding a World AIDS Day event.

We welcome you to join us for our World AIDS Day event, and celebrate life.  The event will include keynote speakers, live performances, food, prizes and more as we celebrate our continued fight for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.  Here is the information:

Date:          December 1, 2009
Time:         10am – Noon
Location:    18646 Oxnard St, Tarzana, CA  91356 <click for map>

World AIDS Day originated through the World Health Organization in 1988 and later turned over to the World AIDS Campaign (WAC) in 2005.  The theme for 2009, as it has been since the WAC took the reins, is “Stop AIDS: Keep the Promise” with the subtitle “I Am…”

World AIDS Day is meant to raise awareness and money with the goal of defeating the deadly disease.  
Great progress has been made in extending the lives of HIV positive individuals, but we have a long way to go.  Public awareness about the virus is still lacking, and we still need to at least find a vaccine.

Slogans for 2009 events are “I am accepted”, “I am getting treatment”, and “I am well”.  They promote a positive attitude for all to see that those who are HIV positive can still lead productive lives.  With medication and treatment they can all contribute to society like anyone else.  There are still those in the general public who don’t know this, and take a fear-based approach to HIV/AIDS.

Advancements in medications and treatment for HIV/AIDS have been great over the past two decades.  Through healthy habits, medication, and treatment, individuals can live long and fruitful lives with HIV.  But it is expensive to live with HIV because of the high medical expenses.  So stopping the virus in its tracks is the ultimate goal of researchers.

For many years, researchers have tried to contain this virus.  The problem is that the virus mutates, which makes developing a vaccine very difficult.  Recent progress has been made in finding commonalities in all strains of the virus, opening the door to the discovery of a vaccine.  Research needs to continue to be funded through government and private grants so this can happen.

If you would like more details on the event, or need help with drug addiction or alcohol dependence and HIV, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.
