What many people do not know about addiction is that it is a chronic illness, like diabetes or asthma, requiring long term, comprehensive support. While residential and outpatient treatment programs can be an important first step in treating an addiction, they are not designed to address the ongoing needs of youth in early recovery. ESH Recovery Center is a free resource in the community which is designed to help youth with substance use disorders to transition from early recovery to stable recovery through positive peer connections, support and accountability, and social/recreational opportunities.
If your child has struggled with substance abuse, it is likely that your entire family has been impacted. At ESH Recovery Center, we believe that family support is just as important to recovery as it is for the individual who is diagnosed. This includes the value of peer support for families. We offer support, guidance, and encouragement from individuals who have been there, who also have been impacted by a loved one’s addiction.
