Join Our Help Line!
We’re excited to announce the
launch of the Drug-Addiction-Support.org Help Line starting this October. This Help Line is our way to connect with those who are struggling with addiction, themselves,
or who are trying to help a loved one. Currently, we receive and answer over a
dozen questions per week, but we would like to do more to help those who contact us through our website.
To more adequately respond to your
needs, our Help Line has a three-pronged approach:
** We’re hosting an Addiction Support Group, which has been set up to support those who are struggling with substance addiction in themselves,
or their loved one. It meets on the first and third Saturday
morning of the month, lasts 60 minutes, and runs from 9:00 to 10:00 am CDT. Everything discussed in the group
is confidential and you can join using any screen name you choose.
You can come and just listen or participate once you feel more
We’re using the tool Learn-it-Live (any easy to use tool for an
online group) to host the group. This is the platform that we use for our other seminars and classes. It takes a
few minutes to register so please come early your first time, so that
you don’t miss any part of the group.
Please register now for our next group session:
** We’re also launching four new
classes which will help you learn how to use motivation, affirmation
and encouragement to end addiction in yourself or a loved one. Each
class will focus on an evidence-based concept, explaining how to illicit positive
in yourself or in someone you love.
We will teach you practical techniques that
research has shown to be effective for achieving change and successfully ending addiction.
We’ll begin offering these classes this September through Learn-It-Live (Learn-It-Live is easy to use teaching tool and you don’t need to download anything to use it).
