Help & Healing for families impacted by substance use

We know navigating substance use, treatment and recovery can be overwhelming, daunting and confusing. The CAF has a direct line of support to answer the main question, "What do I do?" 

We've been where you are, as parents, siblings, friends and loved ones. We know how it feels. We want you to know that you are not powerless, there is something you can do, recovery is possible and it starts by reaching out for a hand. Call, text, or email our family support line and get the kind of community care, support, referrals and action steps you need right now.
