Do you or a loved one struggle with addiction?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Asking for help is a sign of strength and self-awareness!

We are a group of people united by our passion to help others by sharing our own experiences and offering hope and support to those whose lives have been affected by addiction and don't know where to turn.  We offer resources and recommendations to help families and their loved ones navigate the process of getting the help they need for their recovery journey. Resources are available nationwide for treatment and support to anyone who reaches out for help.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP

Areas of focus

Many wonderful organizations exist to meet the needs of people struggling with substance use and mental health disorders.  As much as we would love to be everything to everyone, there are only so many hours in a day. 

Therefore, we have chosen to focus on a few key areas in which we believe we can be of most value to others.

             FAMILY SUPPORT

Support Group

Addiction is a family disease and recovery is for everyone involved

Support groups - online and offline -- are available to bring help, hope, and healing to families and communities affected by substance use disorder. Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive, and judgement-free environment where people can share their struggles and learn to focus on positive changes for their own recovery.

 EDUCATION & AWARENESS

A complete shift in thinking is needed to put an end to this epidemic

Our mission is to help others understand addiction and its effects on families and communities.  Addiction does not discriminate and can happen to anyone.  However, stigma and shame often prevent people from getting the help they need.  Through education about addiction and how the brain is affected, we aim to create awareness about the struggles people face and how we can encourage them to get help.

               RESOURCES

People struggling with addiction need to know that they are not alone

Our mission is to be a trusted advisor and ensure that each and every person has access to resources for ethical and effective treatment of mental health and substance use disorders, which will afford them the greatest opportunity for long-term recovery.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What should I say?

Help NOW, because there might not be a LATER.

We live in a fast-paced society with busy schedules and minimal free time. We have families and friends that demand  our attention, and it’s rare that we get any time to ourselves. Therefore, how can we make the time to stay...

The Call 

On the morning of October 14, 2016, I received a phone call from Alison’s boyfriend, who also lived in her sober living home (it was co-ed).  Here is what I remember from the conversation that I now refer to as “The Call”:

•    Boyfriend: Hi Ms. Flory.  I wante...

The timing was right…

My daughter had gotten to the point where she acknowledged (to herself, most importantly) that she had a problem with addiction and that she could not fix the problem on her own.  She was ready and willing to get the help she needed.  We had the re...

People often ask me what this means and ask, “What do you actually do?”

Let me explain.

If someone had told me when I was younger that my passion in life as an adult would be to fight addiction, I would have sai...
