There are many different paths to sobriety and they all start with you. It's up to you to take that first step and choose to reach out for support from others who are experiencing the same challenges in life as well as those who have already achieved sobriety. Call the Drug Free hotline, go to an AA meeting, or contact a local addiction recovery facility using the tools on this page.

Trained counselors will listen to your story — the challenges, setbacks, obstacles and myriad emotions that often go along with a child’s substance use. Given that there is no one-size-fits-all approach and each family is unique, they’ll propose a personalized course of action, offering the best tools and resources to help you help your child, yourself and your family.
