Meth and Families Committee Newsletter

In the August edition of the Meth and Families Quarterly Newsletter, a story of hope and recovery was told. Following the mission of the Committee to support families recovering together, the newsletter shares a story of a woman who struggled with a substance use disorder and how she was guided through the system and able to again provide her children a secure and stable home. She had the support of recovery programs and later transitioned into helping others navigate and continue their life in recovery with their families. Read her story and find various resources in the link attached below.

The newsletter is available for viewing and download here.
