Bridge to Hope

If your family or friendship has been touched by substance abuse, we invite you to take advantage of Bridge to Hope. 

With Bridge to Hope, you do not walk alone. You will find practical help, support, and solutions in the company of others who are affected by addiction at weekly support group meetings. 

Our 90-minute meetings include sharing of resources and experiences, a focus on self-care and support, and discussion with professionals. 

A Free Education and Support Program for Families and Friends Affected by Addiction
