In this journey of discovering ways to fight the addiction epidemic, we meet many kinds of people. Just as we each all have our own individual gifts, there are different ways in which people want to be a resource in their efforts to play a part in this battle. It can help to know who you can reach out to and for what, no matter how small or large the offering. Here are some ideas, just to name a few:
- Being someone who offers hope (in a variety of ways) to those actively struggling with their addiction and not in recovery, yet.
- Talking with those who are actively successful in their recovery; and finding seeds of help and hope to pass on.
- Researching ways to support everyone involved – Programs, Organizations, Associations, of any and all types!
- Care for the hurting who have lost a loved one to addiction.
