Addiction takes a devastating toll on families and individuals, and 35 million families with children ages 9-17 need help with drug and alcohol prevention.
But we know too that our cause is not hopeless and that the parents and families we serve are not helpless. Because of this, and whenever we can, we want to embrace the fact that recovery is an attainable goal and should be celebrated and supported.
Last weekend, a team from the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids joined those who have made it through the darkest day and are currently living a life in recovery, participating in the third annual New York Recovery Rally at Randall’s Island Park in New York City.
Walking alongside so many who are living proof that treatment works was truly inspiring. It renewed our commitment to not only be a powerful and informative resource for parents and families as they seek community, connection and support, but also help families gain access to treatment and other help for loved ones in trouble.
