detail: Addiction Haven

additional information

Addiction Haven will be providing overdose peer support in collaboration with Dignity Health and also a youth peer support program which provides intervention during the time between first use and active addiction. We also provide community and parent education. The critical time between experimenting and active addiction is a time in adolescent use that is not addressed. This time is the most crucial for early intervention and Addiction Haven focuses their education and peer support for this time. All efforts need to be a full collaboration of city officials, medical professionals, schools, parents, faith leaders, and those in recovery as people without an addiction can never fully understand how an addict brain works.
