Resources List

I am aware that some people will not choose to work with me, and that is okay. I would like to provide resources I feel can offer support, education, and more understanding for people who love someone with the disease of addiction.

I hope you find the resources helpful and know I am here for you if you choose to reach out!

Take care of you,
