Stories and resources to help our community overcome substance addiction.
Living on the beautiful north coast of California, sometimes we don’t realize that our community faces the same challenges that the rest of the country does.
Racism, health inequity, homelessness, unemployment and substance addiction are all issues in our community, even if they’re not as visible. Statistics show that Mendocino and Sonoma Counties are experiencing higher rates of substance addiction than the state of California is, per capita.

We can overcome addiction, together.
