AA, NA, and Al-Anon Meetings and Evans Addiction Resources
Drugs and alcohol kill Colorado residents by the thousands. AspenRidge Recovery Fort Collins wants to connect addicts with the Evans addiction resources that can save them.
Evans, CO gained statewide attention last year when the Evans Police Department started equipping their officers with Narcan. Narcan is an overdose-reversal medication that helps to revive opioid users would otherwise die of an overdose. While the Evans PD is not the first to start using the drug, they are at the beginning of a trend that seems to be picking up steam.
The Police Department’s decision signifies an increased awareness around the drug problem in Colorado. But, while it may help to save some lives, Narcan won’t end the problem entirely. It keeps addicts alive for the time being but does nothing to actually get them off drugs or keep them clean in the long-run.
Unfortunately, there’s no cure-all solution to the problem of addiction. Addiction is still a disease that needs to be treated with therapy and counseling. Luckily, there are plenty of resources that can provide these services for the people that need them.
Here at AspenRidge North Ft. Collins, we believe it’s our job to connect addicts with these Evan addiction resources. So, we’ve outlined this guide to AA and NA meetings. Hopefully, this might help addicts find a support network so that they can start their recovery journey.
