  • I think it's important for everyone to realise that the programs available ARE for everybody from all walks of life, and even though there does still appear to be some stigma with getting help with addiction, it's not something you should be ashamed of.

    If you think your in a position were you need help, then ask for it. You can't think we'll I'm not an addict because I've got money, a job, a family or anything like that because addiction can affect anybody, at anytime of their life, and the programs that are there, are for you, just as much as the next person.
