“It’s time for the talk about HEROIN”

The Bucks County Courier Times and The Intelligencer set aside months to examine the tragic world of addiction and explore avenues for escape. An increase in opiate use is leading to a spike in heroin use, and that heroin is plentiful, more pure than it used to be and affordable.We hope this series will spark a conversation that will inspire people to talk openly, seek help if needed and, ultimately, save lives.

Anon/Alateen Family Groups

There is a message of hope and help in the program of Al-Anon Family Groups. Women, men and children who were once lonely, lost and helpless because of someone’s addiction, today have courage and confidence in Al-Anon and Alateen. They have discovered friends who understand, as few others can. They have found the tools to help themselves – which can indirectly help their addict relatives or loved ones.

Alateen, a vital part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is for younger members seeking help while walking through life with a parent who is an addict, other close relative or friend. Teens meet to share their experience, strength and hope, gaining a better understanding of the disease of addiction and themselves. The support found in Alateen helps with personal development and the troubled thinking that is often associated with growing up in a home with addiction.
