Give the Gift of Help and Hope

Packs of seized drugs

Ask any child what they want to be when they grow up, and not one of them will say, “I want to be a drug addict.” It’s just not something anyone thinks they will ever be. And yet people die of overdoses from illicit drugs every day. When addicts are asked whether they ever thought they’d find themselves in such a situation, the answer is a resounding “no.”

If there is someone in your life who is struggling with substance abuse, helping them get into treatment can be the ultimate gift. This blog will tell you more about the problem and give you resources for help.
