About the Campaign

"My name is Amber and I was a caretaker in my previous relationship of someone struggling with an addiction to heroin.  To say it was heartache for my whole family is an understatement. 

 During my Season of Healing, I reached out to Lorri.  I e-mailed her one night that I was alone and really struggling.  She took the time to listen to me and my story.  We spoke on the phone.  AND she PERSONALLY visited me, meeting me for the first time, to give me tools, prayer and seriously amazing advice.  Her continued support helped me to return to a non-broken state of mind and spirit.  I am a joyful, healed person today and am in a healthy relationship with my husband, Brysen."

Let's Get Real is addressing an important issue that affects many people in our community...Subsatnce Use Disorder.  Our mission is to provide prevention through awareness and educational programs.  In addition to our programs, we provide one-on-one family support.  This is available 24/7, through face-to-face meetings, texting, phone calls and e-mail.  We are here to answer your questions and provide a continuum of guidance for families as their loved one seeks treatment, moves to a sober living facility, and then reunites back into society.  Family recovery and reunification are an integral part the the holistic approach that we believe in. 

Your involvement is critical to our success and providing families support at no cost to them. Thank you again for your help.

The Hard Truth of Addiction

Emory United Methodist Church hosted a community outreach program to bring awareness to Substance Use Disorder.  This is a family disease and many families were present for this presentation.  My portion, a parent with a child in long-term recovery, starts at approx. 48 min. into the program.  I am very proud of my son, Gannon, and the hard work that he has done to lead a sober, fulfilling life.
