Getting help to families and sufferers of addiction can have problems in finding proper, honest, scrupulous assistance. Fakes and opportunists are more than challenging.
For that reason, the Family Addiction Network will be hosting their monthly meeting at the West Long Branch Community Center on January 16, 2018 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. That is where families and friends can seek support in dealing with addiction in a non-judgmental, compassionate and receptive environment free of charge.
The Network will offer information and direction in "Finding a Reputable Treatment Center."
The Network advises that "By now, we are all aware of the scourge of unscrupulous treatment centers popping up around the country, but especially in Florida (where many of our NJ people end up for treatment).
This month we are fortunate to have Dory Rachel as our speaker. She will share her knowledge in an effort to educate us about how to find a reputable treatment center, how to recognize red flags when searching online and what questions to ask when you are about to send your loved one away.
For over 20 years, Dory Rachel has worked in the industry of addiction including prevention, treatment and recovery with the goal of helping individuals and their families find their path to recovery. She has experience with the insurance requirements these days as well as the different levels of care available based on the addiction and depth of its damage. She also has had direct experience as a recovery advocate on both the state and national levels.
Dory, who is celebrating over 32 years of sobriety, has spoken about recovery to various professional groups throughout New Jersey. She loves art and music, is a grandmother and lives in Ocean Grove."
