Healthy Gloucester recognizes that many people are in need of drug abuse information and support for themselves or family members, but are often ashamed to ask their health care provider, friend or neighbor. Below is a list of local and national resources that will provide you with trustworthy drug abuse treatment and prevention information. Also, some of the sources will provide you with essential information and give you a better understanding of drug abuse. Reading about how others who are or have been affected from drugs and alcohol may offer support and inspiration.  Additional resources can be found on the Healthy Gloucester Partners’ Page.
