This website is one of a variety of awareness and education initiatives to inform the community about the disease of addiction, promote prevention, and offer helpful resources - locally and beyond. There is help!

  • Seeking Help - Road to Recovery - If you are ready to take a step towards change, reach out and let others who understand help. Remember that you only need to take one step at a time.
  • For Others - Road to Recovery - Its 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 the 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.
  • For Myself - Road to Recovery - Every day people struggle to stop using alcohol and other drugs. They desire change; to have their lives back, to dream again and know they can live without the all-consuming preoccupation to use. They long to find restoration in relationships and to know the joy of living. If you feel trapped by addiction and ready for change, know that you are not alone. Many in our community have discovered that there is hope-There is a solution! They have found new life in sobriety.
  • Prevention - Road to Recovery - As a parent or caregiver, you play a vital role in influencing your choices around the use of alcohol and other drugs. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their lives - hold regular conversations, attend after-school events, and listen to their problems - are less likely to drink, smoke, or use illegal drugs. Your words and your example can make all the difference in your child's life. Parents should set clear rules of "zero tolerance, zero-use" that insist on abstinence.

This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.
  • Treatment - Road to Recovery - Who Provides Treatment? Many different kinds of professionals provide treatment for substance use disorders. In most treatment programs, the main caregivers are specially trained individuals certified or licensed as substance abuse treatment counselors. About half these counselors are people who are in recovery themselves. Many programs have staff from several different ethnic or cultural groups. Most treatment programs assign patients to a treatment team of professionals. Depending on the type of treatment, teams can be made up of social workers, counselors, doctors, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, or other professionals.

  • Personal Stories - Road to Recovery - “I drank as a teenager in (my) 20’s, experimented with drugs as a late teenager and early 20’s. I got away from drugs because I got married, had a family, responsibilities and obligations. At about 38 years old I realized that alcohol was a problem. I actually realized I was an alcoholic. My parents were alcoholics. I just knew I was an alcoholic. But I enjoyed opiates and I always had that in the back of my mind (thinking) 'I would like to do that again given the opportunity. Got sober at 40 years old and stayed sober for 10 years. I never addressed the drug thoughts with my sponsor at that time or anybody for that matter. Then I had an operation and got prescribed Vicodin. Did not drink but developed an affinity for opiates. Had the opportunity to purchase black market ‘percs’ (Percocet) and methadone, which would alleviate the withdrawals from the ‘percs’. I went on a 10 year run using opiates. I knew long before I sought help at 60 years old that I was addicted to the drugs.
