Here at HWW we wanted to share a link from the wonderfully caring people at Help.org whose mission it is to connect those who might be needing help with addiction, whether it be for themselves or someone they care about, with available treatment and recovery resources right here in our community.
We know that right now people are more isolated than normal, which adds another layer of complexity for those struggling with addiction. Social frameworks that usually exist to provide a supportive presence or accountability are crippled. Meanwhile, COVID-19 related life changes and stresses are compounding, likely leading to or furthering substance abuse and addiction.
In order to provide support during these challenging times, help.org put together a series of guides that provide comprehensive information on the various faces of addiction and how to get help. It is written for both individuals who are struggling with addiction at any phase, as well as concerned friends or family members that are looking for information to educate themselves or to share.
