Looking for a Fresh Start?
We are pleased to announce our new September series, Starting Fresh. Throughout this four-part series, we will be honing in on some of the common struggles people in recovery face the moment they exit treatment.
From making amends with family members to finding a career with a criminal background, to fighting the battle of child custody, this series will explore the ins and outs of recovery often overlooked by society.
Find the weekly schedule for Starting Fresh below:
Sept. 8: Part 1. “Starting Fresh: Life After Treatment as an Ex-Offender”
Sept. 15: Part 2. “Starting Fresh: Fighting for Child Custody”
Sept. 22: Part 3. “Starting Fresh: Evaluating a Toxic Friendship”
Sept. 29: Part 4. “Starting Fresh: Making Amends to Rebuild Relationships”
But, wait, there’s still more to come!
DTCF will also promote its feature article throughout the month. Since drugs and addiction have no preference, people from any demographic, race, and gender can become susceptible to the drug culture.
This is why our feature article will examine how meth addiction is affecting Native Americans. A topic often unexplored by mainstream media, this article will present a different angle of drug culture and addiction in the US.
