Did You Know?

  • - September is National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month
    - September is also National Suicide Prevention Month Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Day is September 9
  • - Addiction is a disease, much the same as heart disease or diabetes. Recovery is possible, with the right treatment. Support those you know and love if they ask for help.
  • - Suicide rates are rising, and isolation and loss of treatment during the pandemic has made it even harder to cope with mental health problems that can lead to depression. Please take time to listen – you could be the one to save a life.
  • - Even one drink while pregnant is not safe. Drinking during pregnancy can lead to a host of problems for your unborn child. Ask your doctor if you think you need help with alcohol addiction.
