“There’s not enough resources to help. Also they should put the cart before the horse and educate…youth…about the dangers.”
“I don’t know much about the resources available, but the growth of the epidemic speaks for itself.”
“This county handles these kinds of problems quietly behind closed doors. There’s too much stigma and shame for people experiencing these problems to find an open community of support other than typical 12-step programs.”
