Resources

The great thing about addiction, treatment, and recovery is that ample resources exist to assist those who are struggling. From a variety of support groups, to books, scientific literature, and documentaries; information, education, and support for addiction abound. After you have identified the resources available to you, the next and most important step, is to put those resources into action as you embark on the road to recovery. The following agencies are a great place to start:
