Where can I get help?

My first step was doing research on the internet about heroin & Chicago. Try to talk to addicts friends or parents and others in the same situation. Take care of yourself! Research different local treatments (preferably inpatient). Go to an Al-anon, Family Anonymous meeting. Encourage your family and friends to go to in order to help you. Check out the Resources for more specific information regarding the Chicago area.

What do I do if a loved one is an addict?

Try talking to the addict. Get a counselor or other loved ones involved. Try to get the addict into treatment and whatever you do, DO NOT ENABLE them.

What can I do to help?

Talk to others about it. Find and join Facebook groups or local support groups. Volunteer to help raise awareness within your community.
