Talk to Someone

Addiction is difficult, but it is important to know that there are others here to support you. You are not alone.

Sometimes all it takes is a little support.

Addiction is difficult, but you are not alone. Others have survived and succeeded in their life with addiction. There is hope! There are many different ways to get support depending on your comfort level. You are in control. You can attend a group meeting, call a helpline, call a peer, drop in to a support center to talk to someone privately, or reach others online. Someone is available and wants to hear you and your story!

Your key to success can be found in any one of these support groups:
