Who We Work With
Everyone. If you were to look at someone through the course of their life, you can see how the misuse and or abuse of prescription drugs or opioids can affect people through all of life’s different impasses. Children get into the medication of their caregivers, pre-teens and teens experiment, people can become addicted, seniors are prescribed the medications disproportionately to any other age group. How does this play out in a community? Many thefts are a result of someone’s need for money for drugs, families can be destroyed, doctors don’t trust patients, kids drop out of school, young children end up in child protective services, people looking for services such as drug treatment. Ultimately, substance abuse affects everyone.
