Understanding Addiction

by Jasmine

A friend of mine recently went through treatment for substance abuse. Although she’s grateful to be clean and happy to be home, readjusting has been a bit of a struggle; there’s a stigma about addiction in our community, so not all of our neighbors have welcomed her back with open arms.

I’m doing what I can to be a supportive friend, but the apathy from our neighbors has been weighing on me and I wanted to make a bigger impact. I decided to put together some resources about addiction and recovery and distribute them to promote knowledge and understanding of this complicated disease. Would you be interested in sharing them with your audience, maybe here: http://www.drug-addiction-support.org/Al-Anon.html?

I’d also love to write a research-based guest article on this topic for your website. It would be free of charge and unique to your site!

Please let me know if you’re interested in an article — I’d be honored to do even more to promote awareness!

Sincerely,

Jasmine
