I’m A Family Member
Addiction Is A Family Disease
Whether you’re beginning your journey with a loved one suffering from substance misuse or you’re all too familiar with this path, it’s a highly emotional and stressful place to be. For newer pathfinders, we have an understanding Addiction 101 guide, and information about treatment options available for your loved ones. If you want to gain a little peace of mind, we offer overdose prevention training and distribute free Narcan. No one should walk this walk alone so please browse our various support services for newbies and veterans.
I’m A Friend
Lean On Me
Determining how to approach a friend who you suspect may have a substance misuse disorder is tricky and can be uncomfortable. We’ve addressed FAQs that you may be asking yourself on how to handle your situation. Additionally, we have opportunities for peer mentor training to support others your age who are coping with recovery. Have you heard of Alateen? You may be interested in attending and may persuade a friend to join you.
I’m Actively Suffering
Begin Your Road To Recovery
Congratulations. If you’re here, you’ve taken a huge step forward in your road to recovery. No matter what it took for you to land here, be proud of yourself. It’s not easy. We’ve gathered treatment resources about immediate help (24/7 hotline), detox and withdrawal management options, information about harm reduction, and our free Narcan distribution service. We’ve also explained and listed various types of treatment options in our area from inpatient to outpatient, medication-support (e.g., Suboxone), and ways to pay – or not pay – for treatment.
I’m In Recovery
A Lifelong-Worthy Journey
Be proud of how far you’ve come in your journey. It’s a phenomenal accomplishment and monumental feat. We offer various recovery services from individual to group support, as well as Creighton’s House, a community center that provides a safe space for seeking and maintaining recovery. If you need more support in your recovery, we’ve gathered resources on local twelve-step programs, sober living facilities, and how to talk to your doctor about your healthcare.
