Help is available if you need it. No seriously. Recovery may be hard but there are folks who are willing to help you, As we face the new year that is coming in here are some people that can get you the help that you need. There is a hand that will pull you up, when you feel like you are drowning.
StartYourRecovery.org provides helpful information for people who are dealing with substance use issues — and their family members, friends, and co-workers, too.
They know that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges faced by those who misuse alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs, or other substances, and we aim to break through the clutter to help people at any stage of recovery.
Our goal is to offer people who are dealing with substance use issues a single source of reputable, objective information about signs, symptoms, conditions, treatment options, and resources — presented in a user-friendly format and in language that’s easy to understand.
First they asked: “Why doesn’t someone offer access to these resources in one place?”
Then they asked: “Why don’t we?”
To do it, we bring together leading clinicians and experts in substance use prevention treatment and recovery from nonprofit, academic, and government institutions — the Education Development Center, The Jed Foundation (JED), Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Veterans Health Administration, Yale University School of Medicine, and more.
Reingold — a leader in creating outreach campaigns that promote mental health awareness and help-seeking — works with these experts to assemble, validate, and present the best information available for people dealing with substance use issues.
StartYourRecovery.org encourages people to find the support they need, or to help their loved ones encourage and support help-seeking. We hope this website is an easy way to learn about substance use and addiction and to determine your next step, whether it’s having a conversation, learning more, or seeking professional help.
While they cannot diagnose or treat substance use and mental health conditions, they can say with confidence: Help is available, and treatment works.
