“The Honesdale Family Support Group started meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 28th. We’ll be meeting at 7 p.m. every Wednesday at 1855 Fair Ave., Honesdale PA 18431. We (Jack and Sue Heinicke) decided to start this group to offer support and help to families and other loved ones of addicts. We joined the Wayne County Heroin Prevention Task Force, and we noticed at the December meeting that there was a common theme to many of the questions:
- Where can family members get help?
- What can parents do if we think our child is doing drugs?
- What are the signs?
- Who can we talk to?
With so many families affected in our community, we all need to know that we’re not alone. Addiction crosses all boundaries and does not discriminate. It affects our children, our parents, our friends, our brothers and our sisters. It’s time to step out of the shadows and start talking about the heroin epidemic that’s sweeping across our community.
We need information, support, and perhaps most of all someone to listen who understands what we’re going through. If nothing else, knowing that we’re in this together can be a huge comfort. If you have questions or if you need more information, send us a message and we’ll get back to you.”
