“Addiction takes a heavy toll on families who want to help someone with an addiction, but often do not know how. We will offer support, encouragement, and resources,” said Judy Rosser, executive director of the Blair County Drug and Alcohol Program.
“Our goal is to provide information that will help families, friends, and people struggling with addiction, to break free from the destructive power of this disease,” stated Michael Campbell, president of St. Joseph Institute. “We want to offer strategies and tools that will help the addict, the alcoholic, and their families to move into recovery.”
The sponsors feel a great urgency to help the community address the problem of drug and alcohol addiction. Every 25 minutes there is a death in the United States from a drug overdose. Driving under the influence is a major problem. Addiction is tearing apart families, destroying careers, finances, relationships, and lives.
