The studies show the odds that either you or someone in your household or someone you know has been affected by substance use, difficult life transitions, anxiety or stressors, or the criminal justice system.

Life is hard. When we are faced with challenges, we can become discouraged, stuck, and even hopeless. Asking for help is also scary, and for some, a gamble. However, I believe if you take a leap of faith and reach out, you may find that one person who understands and wants to join you in finding solutions that could help "reset" your life.
