RECOVER FOR LIFE
The disease of addiction has hit Franklin County hard and we are ready to recover. We know that recovery won’t happen overnight. It isn’t a one-time thing we get over and move on from, it’s a constant ongoing battle. That’s why we’re in this for the long haul, helping our residents recover to save their lives and stay in recovery for life. Together, we are recovering from opioid addiction as well as recovering from the stigma that surrounds this disease.
COMMUNITY IN RECOVERY
Recovery takes a community and Franklin County is here every step of the way. The healing process starts by understanding addiction as a disease. We provide those struggling with addiction and stigma with helpful resources, non-judgmental treatment, and ongoing support. We created a series of profiles featuring locals who told their story and demonstrated their depths beyond addiction. Together, we’re making recovery possible.
MORE THAN THE ADDICTION
Our perceptions of addiction fail to paint a complete picture. Everyone is more than their addiction. And everyone should have the opportunity to become the person they want to be. These profiles chronicle the recovery journey and paint a picture of a person’s identity even through the struggles of addiction.
