Here is where we all come together, where we can truly start again, find our purpose and walk an authentic path of life. Gather. heal. love.
At MiHUMANTRiBE, the commonality of the causes of our traumas unites us in determination and solidarity to break free of the past and look to a future, where only Love and kindness live.
A judgment-free zone where all can come together, to Heal One Another, and to engage in Active Trauma Resolution, no matter when, where or how it originated. We are the platform, the foundation, the open door to support all and to provide solutions addressing child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and mental health disorders. There are ways to find the directions toward freedom from the harm. Together, we chart that course.
Our mission is as much on prevention as it is dealing with trauma and recovery those root issues are identified and, ideally, before they manifest as deep-rooted issues. Medically and societal advances now can often help discern, by age 5, which children have the propensity to become substance abusers; that information gives us the chance to begin our solidarity early, with the potential for life-changing results. This is the place where we will share how to start over, find our purpose and live our authentic life.
gabriele whyard – founder
Gabriele Whyard has a wealth of knowledge about substance abuse issues in large part because of her personal struggle with addiction to alcohol in her younger years. She got sober at age 39 and was able to successfully turn her life around; today she is an entrepreneur who owns and operates several companies. For the past 10 years she has managed and operated Medication Assisted Treatment facilities in Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley that treat approximately 550 patients, primarily for opioid dependence.
Over the years, she has dedicated herself to understand substance abuse and mental health. She is well-read on some of triggers for substance abuse, such as early childhood trauma, sexual abuse, mental and physical abuse, and genetic and behavioral predispositions. Some of these triggers and predispositions are part of her personal story as well, and she has questioned whether her substance abuse was a foregone conclusion, or if it could have been prevented.
She also has observed the poor treatment and stigmatization of persons working through recovery, and strongly believes that a lot of work must be done to ensure the better treatment by society of persons in and out of recovery.
Throughout her professional career, which spans many industries, she has mastered leadership, sales, and program and project management skills. She has a keen ability to look at a situation, assess it and come up with practical solutions to solve problems. She is now taking these skill sets to employ them for the missions of MiHUMANTRiBE.
Gabriele has always searched for the deeper meaning of life and from childhood was driven to work to serve others. She’s always felt that her real purpose is not to further her own cause, unless that cause also benefits the greater good. Some recent personal events inspired her to act now, to do something that will have a significant and lasting positive impact and thus MiHUMANTRiBE was born.
Gabriele has decided to go to any length to draw attention to a problem that is much larger than currently reported. Addictive behaviors are rampant in our society, to much more than just drugs and alcohol. Addiction is tied to brain chemistry and the reward system and is all-encompassing, from substances, to foods, to working, shopping, gambling, and other forms of more extreme risk-taking. Addictions are always destructive, and in the worst cases, cause death.
MiHUMANTRiBE is geared to provide a plethora of educational material on substance abuse and its causes, how to possibly prevent substance abuse in teens and young adults, and much, much more. While a commercial enterprise, the company is focused on philanthropy and part of the proceeds from commercial sales will be donated to not-for-profit organizations that provide solutions for those in need and align with the mission of MiHUMANTRiBE.
Gabriele is an open book and will share and give freely to anyone in need…MiHUMANTRiBE is a place where all can “Gather. Heal. Love.” You can reach her to ask questions via this website and social media platforms.”
