We are a caring group of individuals who really hope you will use these resources early and often. They could help you avoid what some of us have experienced with substance abuse and addiction in our families. Or quickly take those courageous first steps towards seeking help for yourself or to help someone else. Seeking help and navigating the system, especially when in crisis, can be a scary, stressful, confusing, and time-consuming task. Many of us have been in your shoes. Fortunately, there is help and hope. Individuals and organizations that will understand; we would help you in a heartbeat if only given the chance.
