For Others

“The hardest thing I had to do was change the locks on my door.”
Winchester Mother of Heroin User Serving Second Sentence



It’s heartbreaking to watch someone you love or care about abuse drugs or alcohol. Perhaps no one knows this better than you. One of the most difficult things to do is admit that a loved one has become addicted to a substance. Drug and alcohol addictions can affect many areas of life including family members, friends, financial stability, and most importantly the health and welfare of the individual. Fortunately, with your support, they have a greater chance of overcoming their addiction.

You are on the right path to find help for the one you care about.
