Very few people talk about addiction, rehabilitation, relapses, and overdoses in polite society. They are possibly ashamed, more probably at wits’ end. Most don’t know how, where or with whom to talk about the problem.

Chandler’s Hope is a ministry that provides answers to those immediate questions of what to do, where to go, and who to turn to when the bottom falls out of life. It is also our hope that through awareness and prevention some families might avoid the nightmare of addiction.
