Drug and alcohol addiction are some of the most pervasive public health issues of our modern society. Over the last 20 years, substance abuse has been a hot topic of conversation. It’s also been one of the biggest enemies families have faced.

Reading the local news today I was inundated with stories on local drug arrests, mass long term investigations and centuries worth of jail sentences being handed out by the court systems.
