"Simple sleep-related movement disorders are a group of conditions that must be differentiated from parasomnias which are more complex sleep-related movement disorders and appear goal directed but are outside the conscious awareness of the individual. Simple sleep-related movement disorders must also be distinguished from movement disorders that occur predominantly during wakefulness but may occur to a minor degree in sleep. There is an expanding body of research identifying genes, chromosomes, and neurotransmitters in the pathophysiology of simple sleep-related movement disorders."

In the fall of 2016, I accepted an offer to teach a class on substance abuse at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond VA. I wanted students to experience more than information they read in books. I wanted to empower them with knowledge they could use beyond the classroom. Perhaps someone in my class would one day be in a position to save a life. I contacted health professionals and lawyers working in the area of substance abuse and invited them into the classroom. At the end of the semester, it was time to take the classroom into the community. My husband and I hope you'll find this resource guide informative.
