Over 100 people have found their way to 15 John since it opened just over 3 months ago. Most walk in, a few are referred, some call and some email. All are seeking help for addiction, personally or with loved ones.
Parents are calling with fears and asking for help. One mother brought in a charred silver spoon –“IS THIS FOR COCAINE? ““What do I do?“ Wives get in touch – “I am sick with exhaustion and fear; I have tried everything and can’t get help for my husband". People walk in for treatment – "Help me get out of this life that is not a life."
People are attending the group counselling programs and are asking for more and their feedback is guiding the programming development sand here is what comes next at SSHC:
1. Community education programs – we have four planned for this year.
2. Yoga for recovery – learning to manage anxiety
3. Private individual counselling with certified addiction specialists
Please look at the volunteer section and see how you can get involved in creating a safer and healthier community.
