The Stigma of Addiction Prevails....

And yet another display of a community's portrayal of stigma and ignorance: not in my backyard. That doesnt happen in your neighborhood, right? The fact that recovery resources are available in a city such as treatment centers, sober living homes and detoxes, are only a sign of the sensitivity and care that a community places to America's addiction epidemic. It is not in a specific zip code. Its everywhere. A sign of a community coming to a realization that punitive efforts are not efficient and that recovery should be part of their culture. C'mon, help your youth or be pulled back by an inability to offer resources.
